The Nigerian Army today hands over the soldier who allegedly raped a 300 level student of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko last week to the Police for prosecution.
Confirming this, the state Police Public Relations officer, Mr. Femi Joseph said the suspected rapist, Lance Corporal Adelola is now in Police custody.
Though he could not confirm if the soldier had been sacked by the military, the police PRO said investigations are on going.
He was optimistic that the suspect would be arraigned in court next Week.
Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Undie Adie has assured that the culprit would be treated as a criminal immediately the Army releases him to his command.
He gave the assurance when the Wife of the State governor, Mrs. Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu led her entourage to his office on Thursday to drop a protest letter in respect of the incident.
The step taken by the Army was an indication that the randy soldier was found guilty by the military authority of committing the dastardly act, and this may imply that he has been disengaged from service.
