A 22-year-old suspected Badoo cult member, Emmanuel Obazuaye, who was allegedly caught with a human head, was on Tuesday brought before a Yaba Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

The accused, who resides in Ikorodu, Lagos State, is standing trial on a two-count charge of conspiracy and unlawful possession of human head.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that members of the cult had been terrorising Ikorodu and its environs for several months, resulting in fatalities.

No fewer than 1,000 of the suspects have been arrested by the police.

The Police Prosecutor, Inspector Romanus Unuigbe told the court that the accused committed the offences on July 27 at 1:00 pm 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 prosecutor said that 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 September 13 for a mention. (NAN)
