The Badoo gang has been a thorn in the flesh of Ikorodu residents for a year and no one is doing anything about it.
There seems to be no end to their evil acts of murder, ritualism and rape. The Nigerian Police Force seems to have no answer to the gang of murderers.
On Tuesday, June 27, 2017, Badoo struck again, killing a family of five- a man, his wife and their three children. The family lived at Ayelala, Olopomeji, at the back of MRS filling station (formerly Kadesh filling station) close to the Army Barracks, Odogunyan, Ikorodu.
If you have been in the dark on Badoo and how they operate, this is all you have to know about the deadly gang;
Badoo gang started in July 2016. Their first operation was in Ibeshe, Ikorodu.
They exclusively operate in the Ikorodu area of Lagos.
They target homes that are in secluded areas and have easy access. This is so because when their victims scream no one can hear them.
They are not thieves. The popular theory is that they are ritualists. When they attack they take certain body parts of their victims and wipe away the blood. They also rape female victims.
It is believed that the traditional rulers in Ikorodu are behind Badoo gang. When some of the gang members are caught, it is said that certain influential people orchestrate their release.
Their weapons of choice are bricks and mortars which they use to smash the skulls of their victims.
A suspected Badoo member was recently burnt to death in Aga, Ikorodu.
The Nigerian Police Force has yet to come up with a plan to stop Badoo.
