The teenagers, aged:  16, 16 and 14 years were docked at  a Tinubu Chief Magistrates Court  which also doubles as a Family Court.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Hafsat Ajibode, told the court that the boys committed the offences in July 2018 at Makoko Area of Lagos State.

She said that the boys gang-defiled their 15-year-old classmate at her resident.

“The boys claimed that they came to visit their female classmate at her house while her parents were not around.

“They offered her a drink which was suspected to contain some sleeping pills and that was the last the girl remembered when she became conscious.

“When she regained consciousness, she discovered that she was naked and bleeding while the boys had disappeared.

“She raised the alarm which led to the arrest of the accused.

“The girl has since been traumatised and hospitalized as a result of the incident,” she said.

She said that the offences contravened Sections 260 (1) (2) (4), 261, 263 (1) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The case was adjourned until Jan.16 for mention.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Borstal Training Institution is where juvenile offenders are remanded.

There, they would receive both educational and vocational trainings aimed at rehabilitating and reforming them before they would be reintegrated into the society.
