The court did not take the plea of the defendants.
The Chief Magistrate, Taiwo Oladiran, in his ruling, ordered the students to be remanded at Agugu Police Station instead of a correctional centre because they were all minors.
Mr Oladiran subsequently adjourned the matter till Friday for mention.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Sunday Ogunremi, had told the court that the defendants conspired to rape the female student.
