The Chief Magistrate, Mr Taiwo Oladiran, in his ruling, ordered the students to be remanded at Agugu Police Station instead of a correctional centre because they were all minors.

Oladiran subsequently adjourned the matter till Friday for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, ASP Sunday Ogunremi had told the court that the defendants conspired to indecently assault the female student.

Ogunremi alleged that the defendants on Nov.17 at about 6.00 pm at Lagelu Grammar School, Ibadan, had unlawful carnal knowledge of the female student.

He said the offences contravened Sections 360 and 517 of the Criminal Code Cap 38, Vol. II, Laws of Oyo State, 2000.
