The Lagos State Police Command has warned residents against living in isolated and unsafe areas where they might be vulnerable to attacks by hoodlums.
ASP Olarinde Famous-Cole, the state police spokesperson, said in a statement that the warning became necessary following the murder of four family members by suspected Badoo cultists at Ibeshe, Ikorodu, during the weekend.
He urged community leaders to identify and report persons staying in isolated areas, which are no longer safe to the police.
“This should be done in order to stop people from moving into unsecured area without proper social structures.
“The command also wishes to inform members of the public to come forward with useful information to aid the police and not resort to jungle justice as investigation is ongoing,” the statement said.
