Twenty-two year-old Emmanuel Obazuaye, a suspected Badoo cult member is the latest culprit arrested in Ikorodu area of Lagos for having a fresh human head in his possession.
The accused was brought before the Yaba Chief Magistrates Court in Lagos on Tuesday, August 8 and will stand trial on a two-count charge of conspiracy and unlawful possession of human head.
It is no longer news that members of the Badoo cult have been terrorising Ikorodu and its environs for several months, resulting in fatalities, with no fewer than 1,000 suspects in police custody.
Police inspector, Mr Romanus Unuigbe who is the prosecutor told the court that the accused committed the offences on July 27 at 1.00p.m. at Number 1, Lejumo Street in Adamo Ikorodu, Lagos.
Unuigbe alleged that Obazuaye was caught at a shrine in Ikorodu with a fresh human head where he claimed to have visited to seek “protection” from a native doctor.
