Tackle the Badoo menace now, Ambode urged traditional rulers fish them out

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, charged traditional rulers in the State to be courageous and rise to their responsibilities and ensure that the menace of ritual killings and kidnappings happening within their communities is quickly stamped out of the State.
The Governor, who said this on Thursday while commissioning the rehabilitated Fire Station in Itamarun, Epe, assured residents that his administration is doing everything within its powers to put an end to serial killings by the notorious group known as ‘Badoo’ in Ikorodu area of the state.

Speaking specifically on the recent killings by the Badoo group, Ambode said that he was deeply concerned about the spate of kidnappings and the recent cases of killings perpetrated by the faceless cult group,

He said, there were intelligence reports that their activities had the backing of some persons, adding that it was the responsibility of the traditional rulers to speak up against such happenings within their vicinity, as members of the group were not spirit but human beings.

After inaugurating the fire station which is meant to enhance safety of lives and property in Epe, Governor Ambode challenged traditional rulers to arrest and put an end to the spate of kidnapping in the state and the Badoo killings in Ikorodu.
