After Few Weeks Of Recess, Badoo Cult Strikes Again, Attacks Family Of Five
After Few weeks of recess, the deadly Badoo cult group has reportedly struck again.This time the group attacked a family four in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.
In this fresh attack, the cult attacked and killed a couple – Mr. and Mrs. Adejare – two of their children, while the third child narrowly escaped death and is said to be in a coma at the Ikorodu General Hospital.
The attack took place early Sunday morning in Oke Ota community, Ibeshe. The children were reportedly aged between five and one. Two of them were identified as Siyin and Ajoke, all females.
As usual, the group gained entry into the apartment after cutting the window net of the family’s apartment and went ahead to smash the victims’ heads with a stone and left the area without notice.
A resident, in the community who chose to speak on condition of anonymity, said, “They had a special programme in their church today (Sunday). The members decided to check on them because they did not come to the church. They found the whole family in a pool of blood and raised the alarm. One of the three children was still breathing. He was rushed to the general hospital.
“There are burglar-proof bars on the windows in the house, except in the kitchen. They came through the kitchen. They tore the net and entered the house.
“We seem to have relaxed in securing the community because the attack subsided for some time. Even the police patrol has reduced.”
The Spokesperson For The Lagos State Police Command, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, said the killings had no connection with the Badoo cult, adding that the location of the family’s residence was not accessible to vehicles.
He said, “The house is just a room and parlour with one open window and no visible form of security. A family of five were attacked. Three died on the spot, one died while receiving treatment at a hospital and the last member is alive and responding to treatment.
“No visible trace of violence or clues linked to the cult was found. No stone was found at the scene. A case of murder is being investigated by police detectives, which doesn’t fit in the modus operandi of the cult.”
