Lagos police seals off Badoo leader’s property

The Lagos State Government has today, Wednesday sealed off a Petrol Filling Station, a Hotel and Event Centre owned by a suspected Badoo cult leader, Alhaji Alaka Abayomi Kamal.

The edifices, located along Ijebu-Ode-Itoikin Road in Sabo area of Ikorodu were confiscated for violating the State’s Urban and Regional Planning Law of 2010.

Naija News recalls that the Lagos Police, had on December 22, 2017, declared Alaka wanted in relation to series of well-orchestrated killings and other illicit activities of the Badoo cult group in Ikorodu and Epe area of the State.

Alaka has been reported to be the ring leader of the dreaded Badoo group.

The State Government, in a statement by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr Steve Ayorinde, said the order sealing off the buildings was in pursuant to Section 60 of the said Law.

The State Commissioner of Police, Mr Imohimi Edgal, had on Tuesday, paraded a Badoo kingpin arrested in the Ikorodu area who admitted to the killings and led the Police to their shrine in Imosan, a suburb of Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, where the group’s herbalist, Fatai Adebayo was arrested.

Adebayo, popularly known as Alese, was alleged of administering oath on Badoo members before they launched any attack.

According to Ayorinde, “The Lagos State Government is joining the Nigerian Police in asking the said Alaka to come out of hiding and submit himself to the law in his own interest.

“The State Government has also enjoined the Police to offer the public a reward for any useful information on the owner of the Alaka Filling Station, Hotel and Event Centre in Ikorodu.

“The government is once again asking its citizens to go about their business without fear. We will leave no stone unturned in keeping the State safe in 2018,” Ayorinde assured Lagosians.
