The Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Edgal Imohimi, yesterday disclosed how three arrested Badoo suspects hypnotised and smashed their victims’ heads while asleep.
Imohimi said this while presenting the suspects to journalists in Lagos.
He gave their names as Chibuzo Igwe, Samuel Akaeze a.k.a Samito, Gift Akaeze, Omotayo Abamoyegun and Fatai Adebayo, a herbalist, who fortified the cultists before going on operation.
“Abamoyegun usually sprays powder into the abode of their victims which makes them fall into deep sleep after which other members of the gang smash their head with grinding stone.
“Having certified that they are dead, the suspects use white handkerchiefs to scrub their victims’ blood for ritual purposes.
“Luck, however, ran out of them when one of the victims raised alarm and the vigilante men on duty alerted policemen who quickly cordoned off the area.
“Chibuzor Igwe was arrested at the scene and he made startling revelation which led to the arrest of Abamoyegun and Akaeze.
“Please note that a grinding stone used to smash the victims’ head, smeared with blood was recovered at the murder scene and taken to the lab for forensic analysis to back up our evidence in court,” he said.
