Gang: Badoo Boys Wipe Out Ikorodu Family And Brutally Take Out Woman’s Unborn Baby
The dreaded Badoo Boys have struck again in Ikorodu area of Lagos. This time, they killed a man alongside his pregnant wifd and two children. It’s understood that one of the children may have been raped and is even lying unconscious in the hospital as at 6p.m., yesterday.
According to Vanguard, four members of the gang stormed Mr. Israel Olusanya’s home at Itamaga, Radio Area of Erunwen at 1a.m., on Tuesday, in a black SUV. The assailants who wore hoods, gained entry into Olusanya, 46, a farmer, and his wife who was a teacher, apartment through a window, then went ahead to smash the Olusanya’s heads with a grinding stone. It’s gathered that they ripped the pregnant woman’s womb open and removed the foetus.
A relative of the deceased described his brother’s death as unfortunate, adding “my brother, his pregnant wife, Oriyomi, and two children—Wale, 10, and Semilore, five—died. “We found the first daughter unconscious and naked, with a black cloth tied round her head. She is still in the hospital as I speak. They used grinding stones on them and nothing was removed from the house to indicate they were robbers.”
One Olagunsoye Oribami, a resident, said:
“What happens in a community where constituted authorities cannot provide security? What could his pregnant wife have done to warrant such ill-treatment? “His two children killed with a mortar. It is so sad to see that Baddo gang has not been neutralised. What is the function of police in Ikorodu, when they cannot give us peace of mind?”
The remains of Olusanya who hailed from Ikorodu, was buried in his compound yesterday. His wife and two children will be buried today.
According to one resident who described the victims as a peace-loving family, disclosed that 40 persons have been killed by Badoo Boys so far. The resident also called on security operatives to step up, with a view to bringing the perpetrators to book. Traditional rulers in the area have been accused of sponsoring the group.
