The town of Ikorodu has become sort of a jungle with residents taking the law into their hands, harassing and killing people suspected to be members of the dreaded Badoo cult in the area.
Angry residents went berserk in the early hours of Sunday, lynching three suspected members of Badoo cult in Odogunyan, Ikorodu, Lagos.It was learnt that the suspects were caught at about 2am in an SUV and flagged down by the residents who were doing stop and search around Odogunyan junction.


Our correspondent gathered that a big stone, diesel and a cutlass were found in the vehicle. The suspects reportedly could not offer any explanation on what they used the objects for and where they were heading to.They were subsequently beaten up and burnt to death together with the vehicle.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole confirmed the incident, urging residents to desist from jungle justice.

Meanwhile, the PPRO said over 100 Badoo suspects had been arrested across Ikorodu, adding that investigations were ongoing to screen out innocent persons among them.
