A Pastor with Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) identified as Pastor Victor Kanayo was found dead while his wife and baby were found unconscious.
They were suspected to be attacked by Badoo cult gang going by the nature of killing their victims with stones. The Pastorâ€™s was suspected to have been smashed with two big stones found beside the corpse.
The wife and the 10 month old baby were rushed to Igbogbo General Hospital by the police Sunday morning.
The attack occurred few hours after acting Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal met with all stakeholders at the palace of the Ikorodu monarch, Oba Abdulrasheed Shotobi on the menace of ritual killings in the area.
It was gathered that the murderers cut the iron bars on the window of the bungalow the family lived in before entering the house.
This is coming on the heels of several efforts by the police to contain the resurgence of the badoo killings which died down after massive raids of several shrines in Agbowa and Imota axis suspected to be the base of the cultists.
According to sources, the pastor and his family were the only ones living in the building because the landlord moved out some months ago as a result of increased insecurity.
The source said: â€œThe pastor was an easy going person. His wife and child are unconscious as I speak to you. They were rushed the general hospital. The police took them them.
It was reported last week that the dreaded gang killed a mother and two of her children.
