Four men who are allegedly members of the dreaded Ikorodu ritualist group, otherwise known as Badoo, met their waterloo today, Friday, May 12, 2017, as they were mobbed to death by angry youths in Adamo, Ikorodu community.

InsideMainland learnt the four men were lynched by an angry mob at Adamo after another family of four was hacked to death at Oke Igbodo, Adamo, Ikorodu in the early hours of today.

It was gathered that the youths who were aggrieved following the continuous actions of the ritualist group in the area took laws into their own hands by attacking the gang before their death.
