A Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ondo town, Ondo State, has remanded five persons in custody for allegedly raping and torturing two teenage girls ( names withheld) in the town.

The five accused –Bode Akinsiku, Femi Olabanji, Abiodun Ayodele, Wahab Fadairo and Adebayo Adedayo – were arrested by the men of the Ondo State Police Command after committing the offence on Kogbona Street in the ancient town last week.

The accused were also said to have videotaped how they tortured the victims and posted their nude pictures on the Internet.

The accused were arraigned on six counts of conspiracy, rape, defamation of character and torture.

The prosecutor, Mr. Bernard Olagbayi, said the offences “are contrary to and punishable under sections 516, 351, 360, 367, 359 and 375 of the Criminal Code, Cap 37, Vol. 1, Law of Ondo State of Nigeria, 2006.”

The accused pleaded not guilty when the charges were read to them.

The prosecutor prayed the court to grant him a short adjournment to enable him to arrange all his witnesses.

Counsel for the accused, Mr. Adesanmi Olanrewaju, Mr. O.A. Akinbinu and Mr. A.J. Akindele, urged the court to grant the accused bail in liberal terms.

They noted that the victims were not in court, adding that the accused were still presumed innocent of all the allegations levied against them.

But the counsel for the victims, Mills Orlu, opposed the bail applications by the counsel for the accused, arguing that the absence of the victims in the court was as a result of security threats received from family members of the accused.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. B.F. Ajibade, declined bail to the accused and ruled that the five men should be remanded in prison.

She adjourned hearing of the case till June 21, 2018.

Court ruling that upheld Tshisekedi’s election restores Internet in DR Congo.

Published

Internet was restored across the DRC on Sunday after the Constitutional Court’s affirmation of Felix Tshisekedi as president-elect.

The service was cut twenty days ago with the government defending the move as part of efforts to preserve national security. It was to avert the publication of unofficial results of the December 30, 2018 polls.



An RFI journalist covering the country also reported that the French broadcaster’s signal had been restored in the capital, Kinshasa after it was disrupted about three weeks ago without an official explanation.

Meanwhile reports indicate that Tuesday January 22 has been slated as the day of investiture of the new president. Tshisekedi will take over from Joseph Kabila who has been president for the past 18 years.
