In its determined fight against the dreaded Badoo cult gang, the Lagos State Police Command has discovered a shrine used by them.
According to the spokesman of the Command, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, officers have discovered a shrine used by the dreaded gang to perpetrate their dastardly crime.
The shrine tucked inside a forest in the area was discovered by investigators working on a tip off by some residents and on storming the forest, the shrine was discovered with ritual items, grinding stones, blood stained handkerchiefs, and other paraphernalia associated with the gang.
The owner of the shrine, Alhaji Alaka Abayomi, led the police team into the shrine located on a large expanse of land that is surrounded by thick bush.
Four graves were found in the compound while another grave appeared to be recently covered.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of operations, Edgar Imohimi who led officers to the shrine, said it was one of the biggest shrines in Ikorodu area.
Entry into some of the rooms housing some of the shrines was almost impossible as they had iron doors.
Though the statement by the police did not state if any arrests were made, the shrine has been cordoned off and is being guarded by a crack team of riot policemen.
