The recent attacks carried out by notorious cult group, Badoo on Ikorodu residents have increased lately. The gang is infamous for smashing their victims to death with a mortar as highlighted by the murder of a family of five.
The life of a minister with the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry (MFM), Pastor Olawale (Solomon) is hanging in balance after Badoo broke his head with a mortar.
It has also been reported that the badoo members rape their female victims before killing them.
Over the past two weeks, there have been about three attacks carried out by the dreaded group with the most recent being the killing a family of five- a man, his wife and their three children.
