22-year-old Adeeko Owolabi, who alongside one Prophet Segun Phillips, gruesomely murdered his girlfriend, identified as Favour Daley-Oladele, who was a final year Theatre Arts student of Lagos State University (LASU), has has given the gory details of how he carried out the bizarre act.
Adeeko, his mother, Ruth, and Phillips yesterday January 4th, took police officers to the shallow grave where they buried Favour’s body after she was killed on December 8th. When the body was exhumed from the shallow grave, Favour’s head, neck, her two breasts and part of her two legs had been removed by the suspects.
Speaking to newsmen, Adeeko confessed that he lured late Favour to Ikoyi-Ile where the prophet’s church is located and lodged her in a hotel before murdering 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 ritualist’s 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” he said
Also while speaking to newsmen, prophet Phillips who is said to be the Senior pastor at Solution Salvation Chapel, revealed that the deceased was killed to make money rituals for Owolabi. According to Phillips, he used the church as a cover up
”I am not a prophet but a herbalist who engages in spiritual cleansing for whomsoever come 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 part for money rituals” he said
Adeeko’s mother who also spoke to newsmen, stated that her son betrayed her trust as she was not aware that he(the son) was involved in rituals.
