In a commando style the police in collaboration with members of the Odua Peoples Congress, (OPC) on Saturday raided suspected hideouts of the criminal gang, popularly known as badoo, in Ikorodu area of Lagos State and no fewer than 100 suspected members were arrested.
According to reports, members of OPC and other vigilante groups versed with the terrain of the area led heavily harmed police officers to some locations suspected to be the den of the group, where over 100 of them were rounded up.
It was gathered that the criminal activities of the cult group had compelled the Lagos State police authority to approach members of the OPC led by its leader, Otunba Gani Adams last week, for possible collaboration and assistance.
According to the source, the recent attacks by the Badoo group, in which some lives were lost, compelled the police authorities in the state to meet with Adams and his men.
“The serial attacks by those boys in Ikorodu are becoming a thing of worry for the police in the state; the police considered it imperative and expedient to seek for partnership of vigilante groups in Ikorodu, led by the OPC.
“Sincerely, the activities of those Badoo boys must be stopped; this massacre must not be allowed to go on unabated; it is seriously threatening the serenity of that town,” the source had disclosed.
