A 400-level female student of the Lagos State University (LASU) has allegedly been killed and part of her remains subsequently eaten by suspected ritualists. The gruesome development was disclosed by a Facebook user, Omojola Omotayo on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the victim was identified as Favour Seun Daley-Oladele. Equally important, Favour, 22, was up until the time of her demise, a student of Theatre Arts in LASU. The incident reportedly took place on Sunday December 8th in Osun State.
Details of the incident as shared by Omotayo indicate that the victim had travelled home to Ikoyi Ile in Ikire; Osun to see her parents. Thereafter, she had attended church service on the same day. While with her parents that Sunday, she received a call from one Owolabi Adeeko; purportedly an ex-LASU student.
Adeeko had asked the deceased to meet with him at undisclosed location. Meanwhile, Favour had told her parents she would be going to school as well as seeing a friend that afternoon.
The friend happened to be Adeeko whom she had reportedly met about two months ago.
‘‘That same Sunday afternoon she spoke with her father and he wishes her the best of luck in her forthcoming final examination. From then on, everything started happening in quick succession. Her phone stopped going through. She did not return calls. Neither did she call any of her parents to inform them of her arrival at school,’’ Omotayo disclosed.
Alleged killers of LASU student own up to crime
Continuing, she stated: ‘‘Unknown to the parents, she had been murdered by Owolabi Adeeko an ex-student of LASU in collaboration with one prophet Segun Phillip who happened to be a serial money ritualist practising his satanic trade at Ikoyi Ile in Ikire, Osun state and one Mrs Adeeko who also happened to be Owolabi Adeeko’s mother. These three people and others gruesomely murdered Favour Seun Daley-Oladele.’’
Meanwhile, it was further revealed that the suspects had confessed to the crime.
‘‘In his confessional statement, Owolabi Adeeko admitted inviting her to an undisclosed location before using one black Honda; to take her to Fortress Hotel at Ikoyi Ile later that evening,’’ the Facebook user ventured.
‘‘Owolabi Adeeko and his mother, Mrs Adeeko lured her to prophet Segun Phillip’s place, introduced later as an uncle. Favour was drugged while at the named hotel. Further, Owolabi stated that by the time they got to prophet Segun Phillip’s place she was already tired.
‘‘The three of them simply put Favour under the tree close to an uncompleted well dug for that purpose. Favour’s mutilated body was dumped inside that well. Owolabi Adeeko admitted further that he used a pestle to smash Favour’s head while prophet Segun Phillip admitted that he used a sharp knife to cut Favour’s throat.’’
Suspects allegedly confident of beating rap
Thereafter, the trio reportedly proceeded to extract part of her organs which was cooked and eaten for money rituals.
‘‘Prophet Segun Phillip also admitted in his statement that he caught her open, removed her heart and certain parts of Favour’s body to cook native stew for Owolabi Adeeko’s mother. Mrs Adeeko, a collaborator in this evil scheme, admitted eating the said native stew called(Aseje); so that her family misfortunes can be changed and so that she and her family can become rich.
‘‘Again it’s important for us to appreciate the good work of the investigating officers. But what is most troublesome is that the duo of Owolabi Adeeko and prophet Segun Phillip were boasting; that they will soon be released by the Police,’’ Omotayo disclosed.
Meanwhile, the deceased was further said to be pregnant at the time of the incident.
