Five suspected skull-smashing killers popularly called Badoo were today paraded by the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Imohimi Edgal for their alleged involvement in ritual killings.
A couple is among the suspects.
The suspects are Samuel Amaeze alias Samito, his wife Gift, Abamoyegun Omotayo, Adebayo Fatai, Chibuzor Igwe who is also a brother to a suspected Badoo member, Uche Igwe who was earlier arrested and paraded late last year for allegedly receiving the phone of a murdered Redeemed church pastor in Ikorodu, Lagos.
The alleged killers were paraded for killing one Shakiru Yekini and inflicting bodily harm on his wife and six months old baby on 30th December last year in his residence at Alajo Close, in Abule Oshorun in Ibeshe, Ikorodu.
Mr. Edgal who described the arrest as a breakthrough said Abamoyegun confessed that he sprayed powdery substance to make their targets sleep deeply before the group smashes the skulls of their victim.
According to the CP, Abamoyegun certifies victim dead and uses white handkerchiefs to clean their blood for ritual purpose.
He further said the quick response of the vigilante to alert the police led to the arrest of Chibuzor at the scene of the crime.
Continuing, he said Samuel Amaeze’s wife, Gift gives information about where to strike.
