The dreaded Badoo gang has struck a community in Ikorodu area of Lagos State where they attacked a nursing mother.
The Nation reports that woman identified simply as Mama Biola, was attacked barely two days after giving birth at her home in front of her children.
It was gathered that the hoodlums stormed the woman’s home at about 4am after they broke in through the window. The victim was said to have been in the apartment with her four children when the rapists came.
They reportedly locked her children in a room and then attacked the woman, mutilating her severely. Thinking the woman was dead, the attackers were said to have left and went to two other homes but were pursued by residents.
Neighbours were said to have discovered that Mama Biola was attacked and rushed her to the General Hospital in Ikorodu but the doctors there referred the unconscious woman to a private hospital where doctors battled for several hours to save her life.
A resident who spoke about the attack said people were deserting the area for fear of falling victims to the gang.
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, saying the woman was recuperating while the police were on the hunt for the bandits.
