Favour Seun Daley Oladele told, a 400-level Theater Arts Students of the Lagos State University (LASU) told her parents that she had to go back to school to prepare for her exams and see a friend on December 7, unknown to her parents that she had an outing with an unknown friend in Ikoyi Ile in Ikire, Osun State.

When her parents could no longer reach her, they declared her missing on December 8, and since then, the police have been searching for her.

But the police said Favour has been found dead in Ikire.

According to her father, one Owolabi Adeeko, an ex-Lasu student had called her that December 7 in their presence.

Our correspondent learnt that Favour’s dead body was discovered at the spiritual home of one Segun Philip on December 25, Christmas Day; a day after the police contacted them.

The suspected killer, Adeeko, who was nabbed by the police, reportedly took the police to the place where her body was buried and exhumed.

Adeeko was said to have confessed killing her for money rituals.

The heinous act was carried out in conjunction with Prophet Segun Philip and Owolabi Adeeko’s mother.

The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident, saying the suspects are in custody.

The suspect, was arrested together with a 42year-old self acclaimed Pastor of a white garment church, Segun Philip who requested for the deceased's heart. 

The deceased was reported to have left home to an unknown destination since 8th December, 2019 and has not been seen since then, hence, she was reported missing by her parents at Mowe Police Station.

Confirming the incident in a press release on Sunday, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi explained that, upon the report, the DPO Mowe division, SP Marvis Jayeola detailed his crack detectives to unravel the mystery behind the sudden disappearance of the 22yrs old girl. 

Oyeyemi further stressed that, the detectives went into full scale technical and forensic investigation of the case and their efforts paid off when the movement of the deceased was traced to a white garment church in far away Ikoyi-Ile in Osun State being pastored by one Segun Philip. 

He said on getting to the church, the self acclaimed pastor was promptly arrested but he was quick to inform the detectives that the girl was brought to him by her boyfriend Adeeko Owolabi who was still within the vicinity of the church.

The said boyfriend was traced and apprehended immediately.

On interrogation, Adeeko Owolabi confessed to the police that the deceased was his girlfriend and that he lured her to Ikoyi-Ile where he has perfected plans with the so-called pastor Segun Philip to use her for money making ritual. 

He stated further that while the girl was sleeping, the pastor gave him a pestle with which he used to smashed the head of the girl and the pastor quickly used a knife to cut off her neck, ripped open her chest and removed her heart which he used in preparing a concoction for him and his mother to eat.

When asked what pushed him to such devilish act, Owolabi explained that he decided to go into money ritual because things are not going well with his parents economically most especially his mother who used to be the breadwinner of the family.

He added that when he sought for assistance from the pastor, he was asked to bring a human being for that purpose and the available person at that time was his girlfriend.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Kenneth Ebrimson has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to Homicide Section of the State criminal investigation and intelligence department for proper investigation.

The CP who described the gruesome murder of the deceased as superlative degree of wickedness vowed to ensure that all the suspects face the full wrath of the law.
