DSS nab suspects who raped UNILORIN student to death

Eight suspects have been arrested by the Department of State Services (DSS) in connection with the rape and murder of a 300-level agricultural student of the University of Ilorin, Kwara State, Blessing Olajide.

The late Olajide was reportedly brutalised before her attackers raped her to death at her residence in Ilorin.

The deceased was left with injuries all over her body. Many civil society organisations across the country had protested and demanded the arrest of the attackers, as well as their prosecution.

Sources who spoke anonymously on Monday said the DSS had arrested the perpetrators, The PUNCH reports.

As of the time of filing this report, both the state spokesperson for the DSS, as well as the national public relations officer had yet to respond to the message sent to them to confirm the arrest.

But the Kwara State Director of Public Prosecution, Mumini Jimoh, confirmed that some suspects had been arrested over the crime and would be arraigned on Wednesday.
