An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday ordered that two friends, Samson Shittu, 25, and Ramoni Animashaun, 24, who allegedly raped a 21-year-old woman, be remanded in Kirikiri Prison.
The Chief Magistrate, P.E. Nwaka, did not take the plea of the defendants.
Nwaka ordered that the case file be sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.
He adjourned the case until June 13 for mention.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Shittu, a vulcaniser, lives at 26, Oluyeye Street, Mafoluku, Oshodi, while Animashaun lives at 7, Osundeyi Street, Mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos.
The Prosecution Counsel, Inspector Christopher John, told the court that the defendants committed the offence on April 26 at Osundeyi Street, Mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos.
John said the defendants and others, at large, conspired and unlawfully gang-raped a 21-year-old woman.
He said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 411, 260 and 2616 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
