The students of the Federal College of Agriculture in Akure,the Ondo state capital, staged a peaceful demonstration to protest the poor security in the college which they say gave rise to the raping of two female students of the college.

According to our source, the Students apprehended one out of the five suspected rapists, Ife Oluwa Modupe who we were told is a student of the college also, but Ife Oluwa later escaped from the college security post where he was detained.
The President of the Students Union of the College, Oladipo Akindamini and other students lamented over the poor state of security in the College.
