Two men, Emmanuel Agbo and John Amaechi, have gang-raped a 12-year-old girl on the premises of St. Martin Catholic Church in the Shogunle area of Lagos state.
The suspects were on Thursday brought before the Ogba Magistrates' Court for defiling the victim and desecrating the church. Peter Nwaka, the presiding Magistrate, did not take their plea. He ordered their remand in prison without the option of fine and adjourned the matter till June 27, 2018.
Agbo, 25 and Amaechi, 35, were said to have lured the girl to a dark corner on the church premises and took turns to rape her. The court also heard that the pair had repeated the acts on April 10 and April 30, 2018. They were however caught when Amaechi decided to have the girl to himself. He invited her to his house on Majekodunmi street in the area where he had sex with her.
The victim revealed that Agbo had also been having sex with her leading to his arrest.
