The spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Dolapo Badmos, condemned the jungle justice.

Burnt to death

According to Punch News, the rapist was arrested by the mob around 3 PM on Saturday, July 23, 2016, in Ikorodu.

Recent reports revealed that residents in Ibese, Ikorodu, are of the opinion that the suspect arrested earlier by the police is not the real Badoo.

The unlucky rapist reportedly “sneaked into a Celestial Church of Christ in Itesiwaju, a suburb of Ibese, and abducted an eight-year-old girl, while a vigil was ongoing”, Punch reports.

He was captured later in the day when he returned to the community.

An eyewitness, Fola, while narrating the incident to Punch, said, “They stripped him naked and beat the hell out of him.”

“One of the youths suggested that he should be set to fire and others agreed. They felt the police were not doing the needful on Badoo, who was arrested sometime ago.”
