Eight suspects were on Wednesday arraigned over the rape and murder of Blessing Olajide, a 300 level student of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN).

The suspects are Ismail Abdul Azeez, Ajala Moses Olutimilehin, aka Jack Lord, Oyeyemi Timilehin, Kareem Osioyemi Rasheed, aka Rashworld, Abdul Kareem Shuaib, Abdullattef Abdulrahman, Daudu Adebayo, and Akande Taiye Oladoja.

They were arraigned on eleven-count charge of Conspiracy to commit crime, Theft, Rape, Receiving stolen goods, and Culpable homicide.

Justice Yusuf adjourned till Tuesday, sixth of July, as three out of the eight suspects do not have legal representation. He also ordered that the suspects be remanded in prison custody at Mandala.

Late Olajide was brutalised before her attackers raped her to death. She was left with injuries all over her body at her Tanke residence in Ilorin.

Many civil society organisations across the country had protested and demanded the arrest of the attackers, as well as their prosecution.
