A Family Court sitting in Iyaganku yesterday ordered that four students of Eleyele Secondary School, Eleyele, Ibadan, Oyo State be remanded for allegedly raping a female colleague, who was mentally challenged.
It was gathered that the defendants, who are minors, were dragged to the court by the police.
They were charged with conspiracy and unlawful sexual intercourse.
The Chief Magistrate, Sumbo Adetuyibi, did not take their plea due to lack of jurisdiction.
Adetuyibi ordered that they should be remanded in Abolongo Correctional facility if the juvenile correctional facility at Ijokodo, Ibadan does not accept them.
She adjourned the matter until May 11, 2023 for mention.
