Three teenage boys, Pelumi Osho, 17; Oluwafemi Shobayo, 17, and Victor Elijah, 17, who all live in Akowonjo, Lagos State, have on Friday appeared before an Ikeja Chief Magistrate's Court for allegedly gang raping a 15-year-old girl.

The defendants are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and rape to which they pleaded not guilty.

According to ASP. Victor Eruada, the Prosecutor, the defendants committed the offences with some others still at large on Dec. 25, 2021 at Victoria Hotel, Akowonjo.

Eruada said the defendants lured the victim to the hotel and gang raped her without her consent.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Lateef Owolabi, granted all the defendants bail in the sum of N500, 000 with two sureties in like sum who should be gainfully employed with evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State government.

The case was then adjourned until Feb. 15, for mention.
