The notorious cultists group, known as Badoo, which terrorised the Ikorodu area of Lagos for long has reportedly struck in Ogun State, killing two lovers at Hassan Abiodun street, Ojodu area of Ifo local government.

According to eye witnesses’ account, the lovers identified as Ifedayo Kolawole, 20, and her heartthrob simply identified as Bode, 30, were both murdered in their sleep in Ifedayo’s one-room apartment.

Saturday Vanguard gathered that when Ifedayo’s co-tenant and relation, Mrs Akinyemi noticed that the love birds had not been seen for the day, she banged at their door but there was no response. She then decided to peep through the window and was speechless when she saw their lifeless bodies on the bed.

The assailants were said to have accessed the room by removing the window net and louvres while a blood stained grinding stone was found beside their bodies.

It was gathered that the couple had fixed date for their wedding before their untimely death.

Ifedayo was said to be a native of Ekiti State while Dayo hailed from Abeokuta, Ogun State

Policemen were later invited to the scene who deposited the bodies at the morgue and removed the exhibits to the station.

The couple’s co-tenants were afraid to talk to the press while some of them have vacated the area until further notice.

Some of the sympathisers expressed shock saying they did not expect the dreaded Badoo cultists to extend their operation to the community.
