The highly dreaded and deadly cultist group known as Badoo Thursday struck again at Ibeshe area of Ikorodu, Lagos, killing three members of a family.
LEADERSHIP learnt that the corpses of the father, mother and a teenage son were evacuated from the house at Ibeshe by emergency officials and the police on Thursday.
The Badoo members were said to have struck at the early hours of Thursday as they gained entrance into the bungalow building in a remote part of Ibeshe to carry out the dastard act.
Resident of the community said the family wiped out by the cult members was simply identified as Aro family.
According to him, a guest who was with the family was also attacked by the cult group, but survived and is now undergoing treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Ikorodu.
Efforts to get the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Chike Oti to confirm the story proved abortive as several calls made to his mobile phone were not picked.
Last week, Lagos Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi had boasted that he had exterminated the dreaded Badoo cult members from Ikorodu as several arrest had been made.
He said the police effectively partnered with the Oodua Peoples Congress, OPC and the local vigilante group, Onyabo to drive Badoo and the militants away from Ikorodu.
