An Ebute Meta Chief Magistrate Court in Lagos, 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.

She ordered the police to return the case file to the Lagos State Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The magistrate however admitted Olowookere (the second suspect) 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, the police prosecutor, Kehinde Olatunde told the court that the suspects committed the offense on Sept. 29, at No. 4, Olanrewaju Street, Ejigbo.

He alleged that they gang-raped an 11-year-old girl to death.
The offense, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 137, 223 and 233 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
