Ekiti State University (EKSU) has expelled five male students for allegedly raping a female student of the institution.
The expulsion was announced in a statement on Sunday by the Deputy Registrar, Information and Public Relations of the university, Mr. Ajibade Olubunmi.
The expelled students are: Babalola Adedotun Kolawole, a 300 Level Psychology student; Omoteye Olalekan Olamide, a 300 Level Psychology student; Bamigboye Biola Moshood, a Pre-degree Social Science student; and Adekunle Lateef Omogbemileke, a 300 Level Accounting student.
However, the statement added that Omogbemileke and another suspect, Okube Gabriel Ogunmoroti, were still at large.
It was gathered that a combined team of EKSU security men, the police and youths from Iworoko Ekiti, a neighbouring town, effected the arrest of the alleged rapists.
The five expelled students will also be put on trial, as they have been dragged before the courts for the crime.
The university urged parents to show more interest in who their children moved together with to avoid being lured into crime.
The deputy registrar said the university, under the administration of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oladipo Aina, would do everything to flush the bad eggs from the institution.
