The police in Ado-Ekiti on Tuesday arraigned four men-Ogundola Dayo 24; Akomolafe Gbenga, 27; Ayeni Oluwaseun, 29; and Seye Banjo, 24-before an Ado-Ekiti Magistrates’ Court for alleged r*pe.
The Police Prosecutor, Sgt. Caleb Leranmo, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Oct. 13 at Moshood road, Ikere-Ekiti.
He alleged that the first accused, Dayo, aided the three accused persons to gang r*pe a girl which led to her being hospitalised.
The prosecutor said the offence contravened section 4(d) of the Ekiti State Gender Based Violence (Prohibition) Laws of 2011.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty while their counsel, Mr Chris Omokhafe, prayed the court to grant bail to them.
Chief Magistrate Adesoji Adegboye granted bail to each of the accused persons in the sum of N100,000 and one surety in like sum who must be a civil servant.
He adjourned the case to Nov. 15 for further hearing.[NAN]
