A suspect, Chidi Okoye Christian, has been paraded for allegedly raping female students of the Ekiti State University.
The 18-year-old, who was paraded on Thursday, had been on the wanted list of the university.

Christian, who is not a student of the university, was arrested and paraded with his accomplice, Odunmbaku Kayode.
Items recovered from Okoye included smart phones, ATM cards, a Raleigh bicycle, a cutlass and a pistol.
Speaking at Iworoko Police Divisional Headquarters, the Chief Security Officer of EKSU Captain Tunde Ajayi (retd), said seven students had been raped by the suspect in the last three months.
Ajayi, who was with the Investigating Officer, said most of the victims live in nearby Iworoko.
He said the suspect usually carries a pistol with which he threatens his victims.
Ajayi said: “With a good knowledge of the neighbourhood where Okoye himself resides, it was easy for him to unleash terror in the middle of the night and return to his room, which he shared with an accomplice, Kayode Odunmbaku.”
Okoye confessed to the crime.
He was identified by his father, who told the police that the suspect “has been a wayward boy who ran away from home.”
The duo will be charged to court as soon as police conclude investigation.
