A Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ebute Meta Lagos, on Friday, ordered seven men who allegedly gang-raped a minor to death, be remanded in Ikoyi Custodial Centre.

Chief Magistrate O.G. Oghre did not take the plea of the suspects pending legal advice.

The magistrate admitted the second suspect Olowookere to bail in the sum of N500, 000 with two sureties each in like sum after her counsel, Spurgeon Ataene, told the court of her non- involvement in the case.

The Magistrate adjourned the case until Nov. 18, pending legal advice.

Earlier, Insp. Kehinde Olatunde told the court that the suspects committed the offence on Sept. 29, at No. 4, Olanrewaju St., Ejigbo. He alleged that they gang-raped an 11-year-old girl to death.
