A landlord in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State was among those arrested in connection with Badoo killings in the area.

The landlord reportedly confessed during interrogation to have collected N5 million to show members of the dreaded cult gang where the victims—a fisherman, his wife and three children— were sleeping.

He was said to have confessed during interrogation that he was paid N2.5 million as first installment, after which the balance of N2.5 million was paid at the end of the operation.

It was gathered that the relations of the deceased had, after the  sad incident, performed traditional rites on the corpses to unravel those behind the killings.

They reported their findings to the police, which led to the arrest of the landlord, who reportedly confessed to the crime.

The landlord was said to have confessed to leading the gang to the room of the couple.

It was learnt that when the attackers came, the landlord’s wife saw them and wanted to shout, but her husband stopped her from alerting residents.
