The arraigning of the soldiers allegedly involved in the rape of a female student of the Adekunle Ajasin University seems to be taking forever.
The military men raped the female student at a checkpoint in Ikare Akoko. And rumours of the crime being slowly swept under the carpet is growing speedily.
The Nigeria Police, however, are not being silent about it. The Police in Ondo State on Wednesday assured justice for the student.
These soldiers were deployed to that area because of the increasing kidnapping cases but ended up raping the student.
But the army authorities arrested them after an initial denial, following media reports and the stand of the Ondo State Government.
The university, after a brief investigation of the case, condemned the act and demanded justice.
Everyone has keyed in to voice out the need for justice to the victim. Even the governor and his wife.
She had earlier called for a protest which she later suspended.

Here’s what the police are saying:
The command, in synergy with our military counterparts, will leave no stone unturned to ensure that justice is served in this case. We, therefore, wish to inform Nigerians that there is no attempt whatsoever to sweep the case under the carpet as being insinuated by some people.Police Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph
