Two university dropouts were arraigned before an Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court on Thursday, for allegedly drugging and raping a 23-year old woman in Lekki, Lagos.

They were identified as Don-Chima George, 25 and Olusegun Rasak, 28, and are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and rape which they pleaded not guilty to the charges.

According to the prosecution led by Mr Olayemi Shofolu, the duo committed the offences on Feb. 3 from 5.00a.m to 7.00a.m at Dallankaster Hotels in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.

Shofolu said that the offences contravene Sections 260, 261 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
