July 8, 2017 – Nollywood Actor Adebayo Salami Oga Bello: I Have Been Living In Ikorodu Since 2001, Badoo Cult Killings Is Unfortunate
In a recent chat with Punch NG, veteran Nollywood actor Adebayo Salami aka Oga Bello talked about the brutal killings carried out by the members of the dreaded Badoo cult.
The actor who said the killings first started in his neighbourhood said he is not nursing any fear because God is on his side.
“If you have God, you have everything. I am not really scared of them because I have God by my side to protect me. I am very prayerful and I am following the instructions given to us by the government. Our prayer is that God should not let these boys ever come close to us.
I don’t move at night; neither do I leave my house very early in the morning. Some of my friends may want to think twice before coming to pay me a visit but I am fortunate not to have friends that move around at night.
“The only way their activities affect us is that we have to restrict our movements and ensure that we do not move at night. I have been living in Ikorodu for about 16 years and I have never encountered anything like this.
Ikorodu used to be a very peaceful place but it is like the rest of the world that faces the challenge of crime. We have never witnessed such but I know God would see us through.
The government has taken some steps by collaborating with the neighborhood, police and traditionalists and I am optimistic that we would have a desired result.
We should first monitor this step before we begin to think of declaring a state of emergency in the area. I believe the government’s initiative is yielding results because they have already begun to pick the boys.”
