The police in Lagos have docked a 22-year-old man suspected member of the dreaded Badoo cult for being in possession of fresh human head.

The accused, Emmanuel Obazuaye was on Tuesday brought before a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos is standing trial on a two-count charge of conspiracy and unlawful possession of human head.

Members of the cult have been terrorising residents of Ikorodu town and its environs for several months, resulting in deaths and fatalities as no fewer than 1, 000 of the suspects have been arrested by the police.

Police Prosecutor, Insp. Romanus Unuigbe, told the court that the accused committed the offences on July 27 at 1.00 p.m. at No. 1, Lejumo St., Adamo, Ikorodu, Lagos.

Unuigbe alleged that Obazuaye was caught at a shrine in Ikorodu with a fresh human head where he claimed# he visited to seek “protection” from a native doctor.

He said Obazuaye, who did not act alone, but with others still at large, was immediately taken to the police station for further questioning.

The offences contravened Sections 238 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).

The Chief Magistrate, Mr. Adewale Ojo, granted the accused bail in the sum of N250, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

He said the sureties must be blood relations of the accused and should also show evidence of three years tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

Ojo adjourned the case until Sept. 13 for mention.
