This is just as five residents were crushed to death by a car in Isiwu, Ikorodu, while trying to administer jungle justice on a suspected Badoo member.
In Owode Onirin, the cult members were said to have attacked two orthodox churches – Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Crystal Church of Christ parish; and Celestial Church of Christ, Orisun Ayomi parish – both on Anibaba Street, Weigh Bridge, Owode Onirin.
PUNCH Metro learnt that in the C&S church, the assailants killed a woman, identified simply as Iya Dabira and her nine-month-old baby, Dabira. A one year-old boy, Ayomide, was killed as well.
Ayomide’s mother, who was also attacked, was said to be in a critical condition at the General Hospital, Ikorodu.

It was gathered that the victims had attended a vigil at the church. They were said to have slept off in the church after the prayer ended at 2am.
The hoodlums reportedly scaled the church’s fence, which bordered an uncompleted building and entered the house of God, smashing a big stone on the heads of the four victims.
A member of the church, Tayo Moses, said Dabira died on the spot.
“The three others were admitted to the general hospital. Dabira’s mother and Ayomide have been confirmed dead. The only survivor is still unconscious,” he added.
