Badoo members ‘kill pastor’s wife, two more’ at Owode-Ajegunle
Suspected members of the Badoo cult group have killed three persons, including a pastor’s wife, at Owode Ajegunle area of Lagos State.
This is in spite of a manhunt for members of the group by security agents in the state.
According to Punch, the attack occurred at a Celestial Church of Christ, Cherubim and Seraphim located at 4 Victoria Anibaba Street, Owode Weighbridge, along Ikorodu Road.
Witnesses said the cultists attacked the wife of the founder of the church and her two-year-old daughter, as well as another woman who lived in the church with her daughter.
One woman and the two girls were killed during the attack.
ICIR made attempts to reach Olarinde Famous-Cole, spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, but his number was unreachable.
The police, in collaboration with members of the Odua Paoples Congress (OPC) and other local vigilante groups, had raided suspected hideouts of the cult group last week, arresting more than 100 suspects.
