Hammed said that the accused and his accomplice had raped the girl after a party to celebrate his birthday.

“At about 8.00p.m., Oyejide, aka MI celebrated his birthday at Adigbe and some ladies were invited.

“Later in the night, the accused and one other got the victim, who is also a friend drunk.

“The accused and his friend took the victim to his house at Ijeja and they raped her to death,” he said.

The prosecutor said that the accused thereafter pretended to be sympathizers and rushed their victim to the hospital where she was confirmed dead.

“The management of the hospital reported the case to the police, which led to Oyejide’s arrest,” Hammed said.

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Sections 516, 357 and 358 of the Criminal Law of Ogun State, 2006.

The issue of rape has become rampant in the Nigerian society many parents shy away from this responsibility of giving their kids sex education leaving it to the  society and schools to teach their children.
