Residents Set Ablaze Three Suspected Badoo Members In Lagos
Three suspected members of a dreaded cult group terrorizing Ikorodu community of Lagos State, on Sunday, met their waterloo as angry residents set them ablaze after a hot chase.
The residents who had decided to keep vigils in securing themselves and their families from the incessant attack from the cult group, flagged down a Honda-Compact Recreational Vehicle with three occupants at about 2am on Sunday on Oduyebo Street, near Odogunyan bus stop.
The car, reportedly contained a big stone and some quantities of diesel.
The vigilantes reportedly asked them where they were heading for and the reason for having the objects in the vehicle, especially the stone, which Badoo members usually used to smash heads of their victims.
It was said that when the occupants could not give convincing answers, the residents beat them up and eventually set them and the CRV ablaze.
A resident of the area, Olakunle Wahab, said the suspects confessed to being members of the cult before they were lynched.
He said, “The three persons were in a CRV without a number plate. They were stopped and asked where they were going to, but they could not give a satisfactory answer. A big stone was found in the vehicle. As they were being beaten up, they demanded to be handed over to the police.
“But the vigilantes claimed that they would be freed if they were handed over to the police. In fact, the mob chased away a police patrol team that came to rescue the suspects.”
