Following the murder of an entire family in the Oke – Ota end of Ibeshe community, Ikorodu, on Sunday, July 30, 2017, the lawmaker representing Ikorodu Constituency in the House of Representatives has condemned the killings that threw the entire community into deep mourning.
Hon. Jimi Benson in a statement which was obtained by InsideMainland termed the killings as “disheartening and particularly troubling.”
Commenting on the death, Hon. Benson said “as we thought the worst was over, once again our community has been thrown into mourning.
“In the early hours of July 30, 2017, at Oke-Ota Ibese, Ikorodu; the devilish Badoo group broke into a home and killed a family of five. The fact that they were able to wreak such havoc and escape unnoticed by the law enforcement agencies is so disheartening and particularly troubling to me.”
Speaking further, the lawmaker said “I wish to assure the good people of Ikorodu division that messages have been sent to the appropriate authorities for proper investigation and support.”
He concluded saying “I am assuring all residents of Ikorodu division that forces of darkness shall not prevail and our society shall come out stronger from this incessant attack of Badoo group and all other forces of evil.”
