This is to draw the public attention to a tweet which has gone viral on social media on alleged rape in Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD). Investigation by the University authority reveals that the story was false and utterly baseless. For avoidance of doubt nobody was raped in Afe Babalola University. The investigation also revealed that the rape story was concocted and tweeted by the following students:
Bamigboye Elizabeth Omowonuola (400Level Law)
Lotana Don-Adinuba (500Level Engineering)
Comfort Adaji (400Level Law).
Each of the students has confessed and admitted her role in the make-up story. Having regard to the damage the extensive publication of the false news has done to the ever growing international image of the University, the originators and disseminators of the false story who have also made confessional statement will appear before the Students Disciplinary Committee of the University.
