Court Remands Four Minors For Gang-Raping Schoolmate

Four students of Eleyele Secondary School have been remanded for the alleged rape of a mentally challenged female school mate.

The order for the remand of the four students was given by a Family Court in Iyaganku on Tuesday.

The police charged the defendants who are minors with conspiracy and unlawful sexual intercourse.

The Police Prosecutor, Inspector Folake Ewe, told the court that the students allegedly conspired to commit the offence.

Ewe said the minors had between January and March 15 defiled the 16-year-old female student who is mentally challenged.

She said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 516 of the Criminal Code and Section 34 of the Oyo State Child Rights Law, 2006.

The Chief Magistrate, Sumbo Adetuyibi did not take their plea due to lack of jurisdiction.

Adetuyibi ordered that they be remanded in the Abolongo Correctional Facility if the juvenile correctional facility at Ijokodo, Ibadan did not accept them.

She adjourned the matter to May 11, for mention.
