A retired senior police officer has condemned the killings of suspected members of the dreaded Badoo cult group terrorising Ikorodu area in Lagos.
Israel Ajao, a retired Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG), appealed to aggrieved members of the public to stop the killing.
Ajao, Chairman, Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Corps (LNSC), made the appeal during a security town hall meeting organised by the corps for communities in and around Ikorodu.
He described the killing of suspected badoo members by a mob as uncivilised.
If anyone arrests any suspect, he should hand him over to the police for investigation and possible prosecution.
Juggle justice is not the solution to crime and criminality.
I, therefore, appeal that such an action should stop. The police in Lagos are doing well and they have all it takes to handle the situation.
All they need is information. That is the reason for this meeting. Badoo boys are human beings, they live with us; people must say what they know about them.
I want all private security organisations to register with LNSC so that we can work together,“ he said.
Traditional rulers, religious leaders, transporters, traders, the youth, military, paramilitary and private security organisation’s attended the meeting.topics from
