The National Leader of the Oodua Peoples’ Congress [OPC], Otunba Gani Adams has fingered influential politicians and wealthy men in Lagos State as being the ones sponsoring the deadly ritual cult gang, Badoo.
“For about two and half years, our coordinators in Ijede have been giving us a lot of information about Badoo. We realized that some highly-placed personalities were involved.
They use vacancy adverts, among others, to lure would-be Badoo members and they put up some telephone numbers. When you call the numbers, they will call you to come to their office and they will give you money for empowerment, like N250,000.
From what we have gathered, they normally buy the bloodstained handkerchiefs for N500,000, N1 million or N1.5 million. A common man cannot afford that money. It is being organized by some prominent people.
The Lagos State Government plays partisan politics with the lives and property of people whereas the first duty of government, whether federal, state or local, is to make sure the lives of the citizenry are protected,” Otunba Adams said.
Recall that the OPC had, in conjunction with the state police command and some vigilante groups in the Ikorodu area, raided some dark spots on Saturday, July 1, 2017, and successfully arrested some members of the notorious gang that had been terrorizing residents of Ikorodu for months now.
