Days after the painful death of Favour Daley-Oladele, a final year student of sociology of Lagos State University (LASU) who was murdered for money rituals at Ikoyi-Ile in Osun state, the suspected killers of the final year student have narrated the gory details of how she was murdered.
We learnt that Osun homicide police detectives have exhumed the victim’s dismembered body from a dry shallow well at Ikoyi-Ile.
As the Osun state commissioner of police, Babatunde Kokumo led detectives from the homicide section of the command during the exhumation operation, the three principal suspects who were arrested gave the gory details of the tragic incident.
The exhumation operation revealed that the head, the two breasts, neck and part of the two legs were no longer there after the remains were exhumed.
A prophet identified as Segun Philip and the deceased’s boyfriend named as Adeeko Owolabi killed the deceased on December 8.
Ruth, Owolabi’s mother, was also said to have a played a role in the dastardly act.
Owolabi, also a graduate of LASU, told reporters during the operation that he conspired with Philip to murder her girlfriend for money rituals.
According to him, he lured the deceased to Ikoyi-Ile and lodged her in an hotel before killing her.
“After I lodged her in a guest house, I took her to a house which I claimed to be my uncle’s house, knowing fully well that the place was a ritualists den.
“I smashed a pestle on her head and she collapsed. The prophet thereafter used a knife and cutlass to dismember her body which was divided into three parts breasts, head and legs with other vital parts.
“We buried the remaining part of her body beside Prophet Philip’s Church called ‘Solution Salvation Chapel’, while some vital parts was given to my mother to eat for spiritual cleansing.”
Philip confessed that the deceased was murdered to make money rituals for Owolabi.
“I am not a prophet but a herbalist who engages in spiritual cleansing for whosoever come to my place,” he said.
“I used the Solution Salvation Chapel as a cover up not to allow people know the true picture of who I am and what I do.
“Owolabi came to my place for money rituals and I told him that we need a complete human being for the rituals.
“And on December 8, he brought his girlfriend to my church and we killed her and as well dismembered her body part for money rituals.”
Owolabi’s mother, Ruth, who also spoke with reporters, said she was not aware that the concoction given to her to eat and the cream was made of human part.
The police commissioner said detectives carried out thorough investigation to ascertain the actual place the deceased was buried, adding that the police would ensure that justice prevailed in the matter.
Students of Lagos State University (LASU) trooped out on Monday for the candlelight in honour of their slain colleague, Favour Sewanu Daley-Oladele.
The 22-year-old final year student was lured by his 23-year-old boyfriend, Adeeko Owolabi to a Cherubim & Seraphim Church at Ikoyi-Ile in Osun State where she was murdered and part of her organs were removed for a ‘get-rich-quick’ money-making concoction.
A LASU student, Dele Alli had earlier urged fellow students via his twitter handle to turn out for the candlelight.
Also, a hashtag, #justiceForFavour has been created to seek justice for the slain thespian.
The mourning students, decked in black attires, converged on the Department of Theatre Arts and Music to honour their departed colleague.
From there, they moved round the campus, singing in a dirge.
Some of them were in tears.
They called on LASU authorities and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu as well as Inspector-General of Police to ensure Justice is exercise on the perpetrator(s).
They warned the government not to sweep the matter under the carpet.
Also, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) Southwest (Zone D) promised to follow the matter to a logical conclusion and “update the general public on their actions and findings in due time.”
A tweet by its Coordinator, Comrade Kappo Samuel Olawale said an injury to one is an injury to all!
“We will not keep quiet in this case of pure cruelty. The culprits must be brought to book and made to face the wrath of the law. We will stand till the very end to ensure justice is gotten for Favour,” Olawale said.
A group, LASU PRs & Influencers said: “The federation who understands the importance of life and justice should use their position to demand justice for Favour. Favour was said to be pregnant at the time of this incident. Please Let’s fight for #JusticeForFavour and spread the news.”
Gracie’s Goddess said she and the late Miss Daley-Oladele wrote senior West African Examination Council (WAEC) in the same school.
“Favour when I saw it, I didn’t believe it was you till I saw your name we wrote senior WAEC in the same secondary school. I just pray those individuals involved get punished,” she wrote on Twitter.
A social media influencer @RUCCIFIED wrote: “This life is already sad and hard; why then make it sadder and harder for another family at this time?
“How much fearless could one be that gives you gut to behead a fellow human, disembark the body parts, beat to a mortal and then feed on it?
“We truly hope that the @LASUOfficial together with the @lagosstategov and other states and federal law agencies against brutality and evil practices as such above would lend a voice and take action to ensure that the culprits are brought to book.”
