Residents of Idioro area of Ogijo, Ikorodu, Lagos state, were thrown into mourning after dead bodies of couple who live in the area were discovered on their matrimonial bed. The door was then forced open upon the arrival of Policemen and a grinding stone was found on the bodies which suggested that the attack was carried out by dreaded cultists in Ikorodu known as ‘Badoo’ though according to Vanguard, nobody could give details of the operation.
It was gathered that the couple known as “Baba and Mama Seun”, both residents of Ekundayo, ESCOBA, lived in an uncompleted building and were last seen on Tuesday night but when neighbours did not see them, it was assumed they have travelled out of town.
However, a neighbour who kept her cell phone with them the previous day, dialled their mobile numbers severally to request for the phone but their phones kept ringing without response.
This baffled the neighbor who continued to dial the numbers until Friday before she decided to draw the attention of other other landlords who banged the couple’s door to no avail.
The neighbours later peeped through the window only to behold the gory sight of the couple on their matrimonial bed tucked in a mosquito net but stinking. The alarm was immediately raised and Policemen from Ogijo Division were intimated about the development.
Eye witnesses’ account said the bodies were moved to Sagamu while the grinding stone was taken to Ogijo Division for further investigations.
Baba Seun’s children were spared of the attack for the fact that his first wife was said to have divorced him about 11 years ago and she went away with all the children. However, the man remarried about a year ago and the marriage was yet to be blessed with children .
The couple’s assailants were suspected to have gained entrance through one of the open windows though the net was neatly removed and later fixed after the operation.
