Pastor Abayomi Adelakun, the Chairman of the landlords’ association, in the area said the suspect had tried to rape some old women in the neighbourhood.

“Two weeks ago, he came to Oke Ota and attacked an 86-year-old grandma. He attempted to rape her, but when she resisted, he injured her in the nose.”

“The woman was rushed to a hospital. She survived the attack.”

“On Sunday, around 1am, I was called by a security man that Badoo had raped and brutalised Grace (Obinna), who was a teacher with a nine-month-old baby.”

“When we got to the scene, I could not recognise the lady again. All her teeth had been removed; she was in a pool of blood. She was rejected at two hospitals, but confirmed dead at LASUTH.

“Badoo forces himself into women’s rooms, rapes and brutalises them if they resist. He was doing that in neighbouring communities and has now come to Oke Ota.”

The Lagos State Police Command has begun investigations into the matter. This was confirmed by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos.
