Suspected killers of Miss Favour Daley-Oladele, on Saturday, narrated the gory details of how the final year Sociology student of the Lagos State University (LASU) was gruesomely murdered for money rituals at Ikoyi-Ile, in Osun State.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the three principal suspects gave the gory details after homicide police detectives in Osun exhumed the victim’s dismembered body from a dry shallow well at Ikoyi-Ile.
NAN reports that Babatunde Kokumo, Commissioner of Police in Osun State, led detectives from the Homicide Section of the command during the exhumation operation.
When the remains were exhumed, the head, the two breasts, neck and part of the two legs were no longer there.
NAN recalls that the deceased was allegedly killed by a prophet, Segun Philip, 42, and her boyfriend, Adeeko Owolabi, 22, in Ikoyi-Ile, Osun State, on December 8, for money rituals. Owolabi’s mother, Ruth was also said to have played a role in the dastardly act.
Owolabi, also a graduate of LASU, told newsmen during that he conspired with the prophet to murder his 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 full well that the place was a ritualists’ den.
“I smashed a pistol 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 were given to my mother to eat for spiritual cleansing,” he said.
Also speaking with newsmen, Segun Philip, who claimed to be a prophet in Solution Salvation Chapel, said 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 comes to my place.
“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 parts for money rituals.
Owolabi’s mother, Ruth, who also spoke with newsmen, said she was not aware that the concoction given to her to eat and the cream were made of human parts.
The police commissioner said detectives carried out a thorough investigation to ascertain the actual place the deceased was buried, adding that the police would ensure that justice prevailed in the matter.
