The police in Lagos have confirmed at least four deaths in a recent attack on a family in Ikorodu.

The attack is believed to have been executed by members of the ‘Badoo’ cult that has been terrorising Ikorodu and nearby communicates for several months.

The police, however, believe the latest attack was possible because the house the family lived in was isolated; and, therefore, warned Lagos residents against living in isolated and unsafe areas where they might be vulnerable to attacks by hoodlums.

The police spokesperson in Lagos, Olarinde Famous-Cole, said in a statement on Monday that the warning became necessary following the murder of the four family members at Ibeshe, Ikorodu, at the weekend.

“A murder incident was reported during the early hours of Sunday, July 30 where police operatives of the Lagos State Command responded to a distress call at Oke Ota, Ibeshe, Ikorodu area of Lagos State.

“Mobilizing to the scene, police operatives found it extremely difficult to locate the house which was situated in a thick forest where it is remotely impossible for anybody to identify a dwelling house in the area.

“Eventually arriving at the scene on foot, the house is just a room and parlour with one open window and no visible form of security.

“There, a family of five was attacked and three died on the spot while one died while receiving treatment at the hospital.

“The last member is alive and responding to treatment,” the police spokesperson said.

He urged community leaders to identify persons staying in isolated areas which are no longer safe to come and report to the police.

“This should be done in order to stop people from moving into unsecured area without proper social structures.

“The command also wishes to inform members of the public to come forward with useful information to aid the police and not resort to jungle justice as investigation is ongoing,” the statement said.

The police warning against jungle justice comes as residents of the community resorted to defending themselves and killing suspected members of the sect.

Over a dozen people have now been confirmed killed in Ikorodu by suspected Badoo members despite the efforts of the police who have arrested dozens of suspects and recently asked the tens of thousands of residents in the area to take identification cards with them when going out.

    Raji Fashola and the Islamist Jihad in Lagos state

    needs the Holy Spirit to see that barbarians are at the gates. The
    Christians were kneeling and singing the hymns when Raji Fashola used
    ISLAMIST “Taqiyya” deception on Lagos Christians to create a case and
    controversy for a court of law to have jurisdiction by pretending to ban the
    Hijab in Lagos public schools, just so that the Muslims can go to the Lagos
    High court; studded by Muslim judges, and get a legal right to wear the Hijab
    in schools, without making it look as if Raji Fashola himself authorized the
    Hijab in all Lagos public schools. This childish and clever by half plan has
    worked so far.

    A robotic court decision; more or less
    dictated from Bourdillon Road, was then issued; not just to override the
    school uniform rule inside the Lagos public school at issue, but more
    expansively to authorize Hijab in all public schools in Anambra, Imo, Ebonyi,
    Cross Rivers, Rivers and in all states. Court of Appeal rubber-stamped this
    daft decision and now the case is pending hearing at the Supreme Court.

      (2)……….Islamist Jihad in Lagos state

      If the Christian Association of Nigeria
      has any sense at all it should file to appear amicus curiae – as a friend of
      the court and file a separate argument. Lagos state governor Akin Ambode is a
      poodle of his Muslim masters. He should not be relied on to make any sense at
      the Supreme Court. The point that was never argued till now is this: since a
      public school is not a religious place or institution, freedom of religion
      cannot legally apply in a public school to warrant imposing the Hijab to
      override the prescribed school uniform, anymore than freedom of religion can
      apply inside a crowded cinema hall when the lights are off. That is the central
      point Raji Fashola’s daft lawyers did not canvass at all because it did not fit
      into Raji Fashola’s hideous plot to foster Islamism in Lagos public schools,
      by stealth.
