2 teenage boys arraigned in court for gang raping female Facebook friend

The teenagers reportedly raped the victim even as she tried to get away from them after discovering their intention.

The suspects, aged 18 and 19 years respectively, are facing a three-count charge of rape and assault, the Daily Post News reports.

According to Sergeant Joseph Ajebe, the police prosecutor on the case, the offences were committed on the afternoon of Monday, March 27, 2017.

Ajebe revealed that the trio have been Facebook friends for two years prior to the incident.

“The accused raped her several times through the anus and later dumped her in the street when they were through.

“They were later arrested by the police after the complainant had identified them," said the prosecutor.

The presiding judge, Magistrate Alexander Komolafe, granted the suspects bail in the sum of N450,000 each and two sureties as part of the conditions for bail.

Resumption of the case has been set for Wednesday, May 17, 2017.
