Update: See The Moment Residents Chased Away Policemen, Set Ablaze Three Badoo Suspects

Yesterday, angry residents of Ikorodu, Lagos State, went berserk lynching three suspected members of the notorious ritual cult, Badoo, in the Odogunyan area.

This is just as the police said over 100 persons suspected to be members of the cult had been arrested during raids on Bayeku, Ipakodo, Ibeshe and Odongunyan, among other communities in Ikorodu.

The arrest followed The PUNCH report on the spate of killings by the cult that had murdered no fewer than 26 residents and injured several others within a year.

The casualties were recorded in 15 attacks from June 5, 2016, to June 28, 2017, and the story published on Friday, July 30.

The residents, who had decided to keep vigils in securing themselves and their families, flagged down a Honda-Compact Recreational Vehicle with three occupants at about 2am on Sunday on Oduyebo Street, near Odogunyan bus stop.

Our correspondent gathered that a big stone and some quantities of diesel were found in the vehicle.

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.
