A member of the dreaded Badoo cult group has been arrested at Ori-Oke irapade in Agbowa area Lagos in a white garment church. He was planning to kill a member of the church when he was arrested.
The suspect, Ahmed Adeleke, 29, who acted as a worshiper was there for the vigil.
A woman in the church was heard shouting that she had been attacked. It was discovered that her head had been smashed. She was said to have pointed to the direction where the suspect took. Some church members went in the direction and reportedly found the suspect changing his clothes. He was said to have denied the allegation.
The white garment which he pulled off was discovered to be blood stained. Parading the suspect yesterday at the Police Officers Mess, Ikeja, the Lagos State Command boss, Fatai Owoseni said:
“Policemen from Ipakodo Division rushed to the church. “Although the suspect denied the accusation, when the area was searched, three handkerchiefs (white, blue and red) were recovered from him. Also, a grinding stone, which he used to hit his victim on the head, was also found.”
The suspect, however, denied being a Badoo member. He said:
“I was a Muslim, but later converted to Christianity. I live at 9, Ojokoro Street, Agric. I was invited to worship there that night by a senior colleague at the tailoring shop where I work.”
The suspect is presently in police custody
