Babatunde Kokumo, the Police Commissioner in Osun state today January 4th, led a team of police officers to exhume the already decomposing body of 22-year-old female final year student of Lagos State University student, identified as Favour Daley-Oladele, who was killed by her boyfriend, Owolabi Adeeko, for money rituals.
Recall that the suspect Owolabi was arrested by the police in December 2019, for luring Favour to a church in Ikoyi-Ile, where she was gruesomely murdered with the intention of using her body parts for money rituals. In Owolabi confession, he revealed that Favour’s heart, breast and other vital organs were removed to use in cooking a concoction by Pastor Segun Phillip of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Solution Chapel. It was learnt that the concoction was eaten by Adeeko and his mother. The trio have since been arrested by police and are currently being interrogated.
As the investigation becomes tougher, the police commissioner led a team of homicide experts to the church where the remains of late Favour was buried in a shallow grave. Her body was exhumed and will be taken in for an autopsy.
Speaking to newsmen, police commissioner Kokumo said;
”We are all aware of the gruesome killing of a student of LASU. The killing has been traced to Ikoyi -Ile. In furtherance of the investigation started by the Ogun State command. We have brought our homicide experts to exhume and help in the furtherance of the investigations started by the Ogun State police command with a view to prosecuting the suspects.
It is a gruesome murder and the whole thing is quite horrible. We will not fold our arms and watch lawless citizens take laws into their hands, destroying peoples lives.
We have been informed that we have a number of churches in this community. It is our responsibility to conduct our investigation. What we are doing is intelligence policing driven by the people’s need. If the community are making us know that they are no longer comfortable with the number of churches in the community or the calibre of such people running the churches then it becomes our responsibility to conduct an investigation on their activities and check them.
My advice is that parents have a lot of roles to play. We have a lot of children in schools, the parents owe them the responsibility to let them know that apart from their academic pursuit they must see to their moral training. It is only when the two are well combined that you can have a complete human being. They should see to the peer group they belong”.
