A woman has been reportedly drugged and raped by three unemployed men who she met on Facebook, Headlinenews.news reports.

According to reports, the three men have on Friday, September 9, 2022, been asked by Ikeja Magistrates’ Court to be remanded in the Kirikiri Correctional Centre.

The suspects who were said to be unemployed and reside in Oke-Ira, Ogba, Lagos were charged with conspiracy, rape, stealing, unlawful possession of stolen items, causing the breach of peace, and receiving stolen items.

They are identified as Jerry Ikechukwu, 28; Bright Umeh, 45, and Patrick Amajuoye, 52.

Magistrate M. C. Ayinde, who did not take the plea of the suspects,  ordered that they should be remanded in the Kirikiri Correctional Centre until September 26, for legal advice from the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions.

Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Inspector Olusegun Oke, told the court that the suspects committed the  offence on July 12 at 35, Fadunsi St., Oke-Ira, Ogba, Lagos.

Mr Oke said that the victim (name withheld) visited Mr Ikechukwu, whom she met on Facebook.

The prosecutor also stated that the last thing the victim said was that Mr Ikechukwu offered her some juice and she slept off.

He said that the suspects put an overdose of “Super Apeti “ drug (a sleeping tablet) into the victim’s juice.

Mr Oke stated that the victim was raped and her Canon 18i Tecno, valued N150,000, was stolen.

“Some wraps of cannabis and different sim cards were found in their possession,” he said.

The prosecutor said that 52 different brands of android phones were also recovered from them.

The offence, he said, contravenes the provisions of sections  133, 166, 239, 265, 287, 328, 329 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
