Badoo Gang Resurfaces, Kills Woman, Two Children in Ikorodu


By Chiemelie Ezeobi

Members of the dreaded ritualist gang, Badoo, Wednesday resurfaced at Agbowa, Ikorodu area of Lagos and killed a woman and her two children.

The incident, which occurred at No 1, Alhaji Olatunda Street, Temu, a border village with Epe, saw the gang murder the victims, who were simply identified as Iyabo Alaba and her children; four-year-old David Alaba and 10-year-old Rachael Alaba.

The trio were said to have been murdered in their sleep, less than 24 hours after they returned to the community after a two-week break.

According to an eyewitness account, the assailants had scaled the fence of the building before smashing their heads, spilling their blood all over the bed.

The victims were said to be sleeping inside the Celestial Church of Christ (CCC), which is also in the premises, when they were attacked as the woman’s husband was not around when the assailants struck.

The man identified simply as Alaba was alleged to have been a repented member of the cult group, which angered his former gang members to carry out a revenge mission against him for daring to pull out.
