Badoo cult group strikes in Ikorodu again, kills three



Suspected Badoo cult group has again struck in Ikorodu area of Lagos, killing three persons and injuring several others.

The latest attack forced residents of the community to besiege the palace of the Ayangbure of Ikorodu, Oba Adewale Shotobi, in protest of the continued killings by the gang.

It was gathered that the heartless Badoo group yesterday attacked a family of five at Olopomeji, Odogunyan, Ikorodu, killing three and leaving two children, between the ages two and four, in critical condition.

The incidents happened around 3am on Wednesday on 9 Aliyu Adesanya Street, Olopomeji Bus Stop.

A resident told newsmen that members of a family he identified as David Ikehi were struck to death with a grinding stone.

The witness said: “David, his wife, Pricilla, and their son, Moses were killed with a grinding stone. Another son, Sunday, was seriously injured, while their two-year-old boy is missing.

“A bloodstained grinding stone was found on the premises and that was when we suspected that the dreaded cult group known as Badoo had struck again.

“Apart from numbers 9 Aliyu Adesanya Stree, two other buildings were attacked, although no casualty was recorded in the other buildings.”

He said policemen from Sagamu Road Division were invited to the scene, “after which they took the injured to the hospital and the dead to the mortuary.”

Meanwhile, a text message to the Lagos Command spokesman, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, has not been replied.
