Akwa Ibom University suspends 4 students over rape



Four male students of the Akwa Ibom State University have been suspended indefinitely for allegedly raping a female student.

According to the Head, Directorate of Information, Public Relations and Protocol of the institution, Mr Akaninyene Ibanga, the rape incident took place at the Obio Akpa Campus of the institution in Oruk Anam LGA.

Speaking yesterday in Uyo, Ibanga said the students were suspended by the university authorities as a normal procedure to allow the police investigate and establish their level of involvement in the crime.

He said the university would eventually expel the students based on the outcome of police investigations, adding that the police cannot exonerate them because the victim has a medical report to back up the investigation.


The suspended students include: Akpan, Udeme Matthew Essien, Godwin Fidelis Bassey Courage Joseph and Bassey Godspower Columbus. Daily Trust
