The Prosecutor, Insp  Johnson Okuade, told the court on Wednesday that the accused committed the offence on Feb. 8 at Afao Street, Ikere-Ekiti.

He said the accused  on the said date  unlawfully gang raped a 14-year-old girl, leading  to her admission in the  hospital.

The prosecutor said the accused  did the act after they had approached the girl  and she  refused their proposal.

He said they later accosted  her at a river side and raped   her.

According to him, the offence contravenes section 516(31)  of the Child Rights  Laws of Ekiti State, 2012.

He said he had duplicated the  case file and sent it to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP)  for legal advice.

The plea of the accused was also  not taken as their counsel, Mr Emmanuel Sumonu,  sought for a short adjournment pending the issuance of legal advice from the DPP.

The Chief Magistrate, Aderopo Adegboye, ordered that the accused  be remanded in prison until the outcome of the DPP’s  legal advice.

He adjourned the case till  Friday  for further hearing.
