• Demolish shrine in Imosan village
The Lagos State Police Command yesterday made a major breakthrough in the fight against the menace of Badoo cult with the arrest of the group’s herbalist, Fatai Adebayo, alias Alese.

The notorious activities of the dreaded cult group prevalent in Ikorodu and Epe axis of the state had sent many of the victims to their early graves with cruel killings through the smashing of mortar and pestle on victims’ heads.

Adebayo, 34, who specialises in administering oath on members of the group before they launch any attack, was arrested at his shrine located in Imosan Village, a suburb of Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State.
The arrest of the herbalist followed the arrest of some Badoo cult suspects at the weekend including the overall head of the group.

Speaking while parading Adebayo before journalists at the shrine, the state’s Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal, said the head of the group was arrested on water during an attempt to escape.
The CP, who led the operation involving the Commander of Rapid Response Squad (RRS), ACP Tunji Disu; Chairman of Lagos State Special Task Force, SP Yinka Egbeyemi, among others, said investigation was still ongoing but that the full details about the arrests made so far would be disclosed on Thursday at a press briefing.
He said: “Over the weekend, we had far reaching achievement in the fight against the killers popularly known as Badoo in Ikorodu.

“Their kingpin who is the head of the group has been arrested. He was arrested on water as he was making his escape.”
Revealing how the herbalist was arrested, Edgal said: “One of the suspects arrested confessed and he led us here that before they go for any killing, the head of the group brings them to this gentleman (Adebayo) to come and carry out oath for both themselves and the piece of stone they used for their killings and that they don’t go for any killing without first of all coming for oath in this shrine and that is why we are here.
“This gentleman is an accomplice before the fact and so definitely we are placing him under arrest and as well as sealing off the shrine till after investigation.

“I will give further details on Thursday during my press briefing but I can assure the good people of Ikorodu, Lagosians and Nigerians that we will not rest until this evil is completely rooted out from Lagos State,” Edgal assured.
The CP also made a brief stop-over at the palace of the traditional ruler of Imosan Village, Chief Tajudeen Muili, to intimate him of the criminal activities going on under his domain.
At the shrine located at No 38, Ayegbami Quarters in Imosan, which was later demolished by policemen, there were different charms and big stones said to be used for the illicit activities of the Badoo group.

    So why did they arrest this herbalist?
    Is it for administering oath or for doing what,as the man did not commit any crime by performing his spiritually duties.This is one of the things they do to the adherents of traditional religion that is very wrong. Can they arrrest pastor,priest and Iman for the unlawful acts of their followers? But when it comes to indigenous religion, they will try to hold them collectively liable for the acts of their members.
    Those who are commiting crime in the name of the group should be treated as criminal or may be the way they treat any radical or fundamentalist group and nothing more.
    But not to parade this man merely because he is suspected of administering oath as if you to say that there is a particular words he must use to administer it in order for it to be acceptable.

      You are a suspect too
      The long arm of the law will soon get you.

        Imbecile! He is right! Administering oath and being member of a cult is not against the law!

        • gabbi

          Being a member of a cult in nigeria is an offence,kindly check the criminal code act.

          • ewucanbeer

            No it is not! It may be immoral, but NOT illegal. Why have members of ‘ogboni’, frree masons, Wole Soyinka, me!, RCCG (yes it’s a cult) been arrested?

          • ewucanbeer

            what is the charge? what of Ogboni, free masons, local village fraternities etc?

    • bigdaddy

      He is an accessory. He had info about what they were going to do and engaged in preparation of the crime by preparing them “spiritually”.

      • Lawrenece Ifo

        Which info??
        Please we cannot continue to operate in this type of primitive manner and abuse of human beings due to their different spiritual inclination.
        They should have limited the arrest to those who performed the prohibited act as nothing in this issue fits into the definition of an accessory to a crime.
        This is unfair discrimination due to his religious inclination and may be,appearance.

        • bigdaddy

          The law says you are an accessory after the fact if you are aware of a crime and do not report it. His own case is even worse as he is an active participant considering he offers them prayers/voodoo to fortify them to go out and kill.
