Lagos Police Go After Family That Raised False “Badoo” Alarm Which Led To Killing Of Four.


Lagos State commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, said on Saturday that the police were on the trail of a family who allegedly raised the false alarm that resulted in the killing of 4 persons in the Ikorodu area of the state.

Owoseni said the family had a brawl with another family over an undisclosed matter, stressing that it raised a false alarm that the victims were members of the notorious Badoo cult.

4 persons, who were branded to be members of the notorious Badoo cult group in Adamo area of Ikorodu, were on Friday lynched by residents. It was, however, later discovered that the slain persons were just land speculators.

3 houses, two vehicles and motorcycles were set ablaze in a reprisal attack by colleagues of the slain persons. An unnamed person was said to have started a building project in the area.

Some land speculators reportedly invaded the building site and demanded for royalty from the owner of the building, who refused and they went away with a threat that they were coming back.
