The Badoo cult group on the prowl in Ikordu area of Lagos State spray sedative substances inside their victims’ houses before carrying out their vile attack, the state Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal said.
Edgal revealed this hitherto unknown modus operandi of the dreaded ritualist group while parading suspected members of the cult group on Friday at Police Command in Ikeja for allegedly killing one Shakiru Yekini at Alajo Close, Abule Osorun, Ibeshe Ikorodu.
The suspects, Chibuzor Igwe, Samuel Akaeze aka Samito, and Omotayo Abamoy in a cold blooded operation attacked the family of Late Yekini killing him and injuring his wife and six-month old baby whose lives are currently hanging by the thread and are on admission at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja.
Speaking while parading the suspects, the police chief said, “The gang of three murderers and ritualists, comprising Igwe, Akaeze and Abamoyegun, usually sprays a powdery substance into their victim’s dwelling place. That makes them fall into deep sleep before they end their lives by smashing their skulls with a grinding stone.
“Having certified that their victims were dead, Abamoyegun would use a white handkerchief to scrub their blood for ritual purposes. However, luck ran out of them when one of the victims raised the alarm which attracted the local vigilante group. The vigilante group in turn alerted the police and the compound was cordoned off, leading to the arrest of Igwe.”
