18 year old boy said he was tricked to join badoo cult

Igwe declared that he became a Badoo member in November, 2017.

The suspect said he approached one of the alleged leaders of the cult for a driving job but was lured into the badoo gang, Chibuzor Igwe, an 18-year-old man who is one of the five Badoo cult suspects paraded on Thursday, January 4, at the Lagos state police command headquarters in Ikeja said he was tricked into joining Badoo cult.

Igwe said he had approached one of the alleged leaders of the cult, Obamoyegun Omotayo for a driving job but was lured to join the gang.

According to him, ''I am a Badoo member. Around November, I told Obamoyegun (Omotayo) that I wanted to be his driver because I saw him with new cars. He told me that it would take some time before he would give me the job"....

It was learnt that the state commissioner of police Edgal Imohimi stopped the interview and ordered him and the other suspects to be taken away.

Imohimi claimed that the suspects’ confession would jeopardise police investigations and efforts to arrest other members of the gang.

Earlier, while briefing journalists on the arrests, the CP identified other Badoo suspects as Chibuzor’s elder brother, Uche Igwe; a welder, Samuel Akaeze, aka Samito; his wife, Gift Akaeze; and a herbalist, Fatai Adebayo, aka Adaripon.

According to Imohimi, Gift provides information on the targets whom the assailants consequently attack.

 He said Igwe was apprehended while he wanted to escape from Alabo Street, Abule Osorun, Ibeshe, Ikorodu, where the gang smashed the heads of a couple and their five-month-old baby on December 30, 2017.

Imohimiexplained that Igwe, Samuel and Omotayo carried out the attack, adding that by the time a joint team of policemen and a vigilance group responded to a distress call, Samuel and Omotayo had fled.
