HOW WE GANG-RAPED OUR 15-YEAR-OLD CLASSMATE
– Confession of three JSS1 students
Three Senior Secondary School 1 (SS1) pupils, who allegedly gang-raped their 15-year-old classmate, were yesterday remanded in a juvenile home.
They were arraigned at a Tinubu Chief Magistrates’ Court, which doubles as a Family Court.
They are facing a four-count charge of conspiracy, unlawful carnal knowledge, sexual assault and defilement.
Chief Magistrate Tajudeen Elias ordered the boys remanded at Borstal Training Institution in Adigbe, Abeokuta, Ogun State, pending advice by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Prosecuting Sergeant Hafsat Ajibode said the boys committed the offences last July at Makoko, Yaba, Lagos Mainland.
She said the boys gang-raped their 15-year-old classmate at her home.
“The boys claimed that they came to visit their classmate at her house while her parents were not around.
“They offered her a drink, which was suspected to contain sleeping pills and that was the last the girl remembered when she became conscious.
“When she regained consciousness, she discovered that she was naked and bleeding, while the boys had disappeared.
“She raised the alarm, which led to the arrest of the accused.
“The girl has been traumatised and hospitalised as a result of the incident,” Ajibode said.
The case continues on January 16.
