Some goons, alleged to be gangs of the Badoo cult group, killed a Redeemed Christian Church of God Pastor, Fingers of God Parish, by name Victor Kanayo, in the Igbogbo area of Ikorodu, Lagos State.
Kanayo’s wife and his son were said to be very unconscious and had been admitted to the Ikorodu General Hospital.
PUNCH Metro learned that the attack occurred shortly after the state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, held a meeting with security operatives, community and religious leaders at the palace of the Ikorodu monarch, Oba Abdulrasheed Shotobi.
The meeting, which started at 10 pm on Saturday was said to have ended around 1 am on Sunday, due to the resumed onslaught of the cult group.
It was learned that the Badoo cult struck early Sunday morning in the Offin area of Igbogbo and killed the pastor. His wife and their 10-month-old child were said to have been brutalized with two big stones with which Kanayo was killed.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, said investigations were ongoing into the incident, adding that some suspects had been arrested.
