Six men were arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly gang raping a girl because she refused to go out on a date with their friend, police in Nigeria said.

Lagos State police said that they have arrested the six men after they allegedly abused the 15-year-old girl in the home of their friend identified as Femi.

According to the police investigation, the 15-year-old girl works at a salon to bring in extra income for her parents. On Wednesday, the girl’s employer sent her to Femi to repair an article of clothing.

When she arrived at his home, he took the item and asked the girl out on a date. She rejected his advances, causing Femi to get angry.

Around 8:00 p.m. on Monday, Abidoye, a neighbor, called the girl and asked her to come over to his home. When she entered his bedroom, the light of the home went dark.

The girl quickly turned around and tried to leave, but was abducted by six men, including Femi and Abidoye. They grabbed the girl and covered her mouth.

They then took turns raping her for about an hour.
