Three secondary school students, who are all in SS1
(names withheld), who allegedly gang-defiled their 15-year-old classmate, were
on Wednesday remanded in a juvenile home.


The teenagers  aged:  16, 16 and 14-years
were docked at  a Tinubu Chief Magistrates Court  which also doubles

They are  facing a four-count charge bordering
on conspiracy, unlawful canal knowledge, sexual assault and defilement.

The chief magistrate, Mr Tajudeen Elias, ordered
that the boys be remanded at Borstal Training Institution in Adigbe, Abeokuta,
pending the receipt of legal advice from the Department of Public Prosecutions
(DPPs).

The prosecutor, Sgt. Hafsat Ajibode, told the court
that the boys committed the offences in July 2018 at Makoko Area of Lagos
State.

She said that the boys gang-defiled their
15-year-old classmate at her resident.

“The boys claimed that they came to visit their
female classmate at her house while her parents were not around.

“They offered her a drink which was suspected to
contain some 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 an alarm which led to the arrest of the
accused.
“The girl has since been traumatised and
hospitalized as a result of the incident,” she said.
She said that the offences contravened Sections 260
(1) (2) (4), 261, 263 (1) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The case was adjourned until Jan.16 for mention.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that
Borstal Training Institution is where juvenile offenders are remanded.

There, they would receive both educational and
vocational trainings aimed at rehabilitating and reforming them before they
would be reintegrated into the society.
