A suspected Badoo cult member narrowly escaped being burnt to death on Tuesday in Ikorodu, Lagos.

Some of the angry residents said they “no longer trust police” to carry out due judgment on suspects handed over to them.

A resident earlier told us some innocent persons may have fallen victims to the residents’ impatience.

Tension and apprehension in Ikorodu has heightened due to the incessant killings by members of the cult group.
