Badoo members confess to how they kill victims in Ibese

Published

on

The Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Edgal Imohimi, on Thursday, disclosed how three arrested Badoo suspects hypnotised and smashed their victims’ head while asleep.

Imohimi said this while presenting the suspects to newsmen in Lagos.

He gave their names as Chibuzo Igwe; Samuel Akaeze a.k.a Samito Gift Akaeze; Omotayo Abamoyegun and Fatai Adebayo, a herbalist who fortified the cultists before going on operations.

According to him, on Dec. 30, 2017 at about 2:30 a.m. the peace of Lagos was disturbed at Alajo Close, Ibese, a suburb of Ikorodu, when three suspects invaded one late Shakiru Yekini’s compound where he was killed alongside his wife and his six-month-old baby injured.

“Abamoyegun usually sprays powder into the abode of their victims which makes them fall into deep sleep after which other members of the gang smash their head with grinding stone.

“Having certified that they are dead, the suspects use white handkerchiefs to scrub their victims’ blood for ritual purposes.

“Luck, however, ran out of them when one of the victims raised alarm and the vigilante men on duty alerted policemen who quickly cordoned off the area.

“Chibuzor Igwe was arrested at the scene and he made startling revelation which led to the arrest of Abamoyegun and Akaeze.

“Please note that a grinding stone used to smash the victims’ head, smeared with blood was recovered at the murder scene and taken to the lab for forensic analysis to back up our evidence in court.

“One Gift Akaeze, wife to one of the suspects, Samuel, was arrested for allegedly supplying information to the suspects on where to strike.

“Abamoyegun also usually takes the suspects to one Fatai Adebayo, a herbalist, who specialises in fortifying the suspects and blessing their stone before an operation.

“The herbalist has been arrested and his shrine in Ijebu Imosan had been destroyed in an operation which I led,’’ he said.

The commissioner said that the war against the suspected killers would continue and that the police would not relent until all the killers were brought to justice.

He furthered declared wanted one Alaka Abayomi Kamal following a warrant of arrest issued by a magistrate court in Lagos.

Presented alongside the suspected killers were car snatchers and drug peddlers arrested at Sunday Market, Ogba.

Abdulrasheed Maina son, Faisal

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Tuesday ordered the arrested of Faisal Maina, the son of Abdulrasheed Maina, for jumping bail in his trial on money laundering charges.

Justice Okon Abang who revoked Faisal’s bail ordered that his trial would continue in absentia pending when the security agencies would be able to arrest and produce him in court.

The judge also asked his surety, a member of the House of Representatives, Sani Umar Dangaladima, representing the Kaura-Namoda Federal Constituency of Zamfara State, to appear before the court to show cause why he should not forfeit the N60m bail bond which he signed for Faisal.
