Few days after the arrest of a man suspected to be a member of the dreaded cultist gang otherwise known as Badoo, in Igbogbo-Baiyeku community, residents of Idioro area of Ogijo-Ikorodu were left in shock following the death of a couple in their residence.
According to a report by Vanguard, the bodies of the couple was found on their matrimonial bed in the area. The incident has since led to deep mourning in the area.
It was gathered that the strange killing of the couple identified simply as Baba and Mama Seun both residents of an uncompleted building in Ekundayo, ESCOBA area of Ogijo occurred on Tuesday, June 20, 2017.
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.
Vanguard reported that the couple were last seen on Tuesday night with their neighbours assuming they traveled out of town after they were not seen days after. Residents were however shocked upon the discovery of the bodies of the couple with a grinding stone was found on them – the usual item used on their victims by the dreaded assailants.
The immediate neighbour of the deceased, who reportedly kept her cell phone with them the previous day, dialed their mobile numbers severally to request for the phone but their phones kept ringing without response, Vanguard reported.
The situation however led to the discovery of their deaths as the baffled neighbour continued to dial the numbers until Friday before she decided to draw the attention of other landlords who banged the couple’s door to no avail.
The residents who peeped through the window of the victims discovered the gory sight of the couple on their matrimonial bed tucked in a mosquito.
The alarm was immediately raised with Policemen from Ogijo Division visiting the scene to conduct investigations and remove the bodies of the victims.
Eye witnesses’ account said the bodies were moved to Sagamu while the grinding stone was taken to Ogijo Division for further investigations, Vanguard reports.
