The accused are facing a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy, indecent assault and rape.

The accused: Michael Fadipe, 28; Sunday Chukwunero, 26, and Dotun Obajuluwa, 22, are facing a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy, indecent assault and rape.

The accused, however, entered a not guilty plea to the charge.

Chinalu Uwadione, the police prosecutor, told the court that the accused committed the offences on May 25 at 8.00 p.m., at Fagba area in Agege.

He said that the accused had conspired and had forcefully gang-raped a 17-year-old girl, against her wish, when she was sent to buy Indomie noodles from the next street.
