Two DStv security guards, who allegedly gang-raped a 17-year-old girl, were on Tuesday in Lagos granted N1 million bail each.

An Igbosere Magistrates' Court which gave the ruling, also granted the duo two sureties each in like sum as part of the bail conditions.

The Magistrate, Mr W. B. Balogun, ordered that the sureties must deposit N250, 000 each with the court’s registrar, adding that one of the sureties must have a landed property in Lagos.

The accused -- Solomon Ichoja, 23, and Geoffrey Arve, 20 -- are facing a three-count charge bordering on conspiracy and rape.

They, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Cpl. Cyriacus Osuji told the court that the accused committed the offences on April 8 at about 9.00 p.m. at No. 7, Olosa St., Victoria Island, Lagos.

He said the accused, security guards at DSTV headquarters in Lagos, gang-raped the teenager.

Osuji said the offences contravened Sections 262, 285 (1) and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

He adjourned the case to May 11 for mention.
