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.

Shittu, a mechanic, lives at No. 26, Oluyeye St., Mafoluku, Oshodi, while Animashaun lives at No.7, Osundeyi St., Mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos.

The Prosecution, Insp. Christopher John, told the court that the defendants committed the offence on April 26, at Osundeyi St., Mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos.

John said that the defendants and others, at large, conspired and unlawfully gang-raped a 21-year-old woman.
