Father Of Pregnant LASU Student Murdered By Boyfriend Breaks Silence, Narrates How Daughter Was Killed For Ritual
A father is now grieving the barbaric killing of his daughter in Osun state.
Pastor David Oladele, a church founder based in Mowe Ogun state whose daughter, Favour Oladele was murdered in a barbaric manner by her boyfriend and his mother has spoken.
According to him, Owolabi who reportedly impregnated her murdered her after luring her to Ikoyi Ile in Osun state.
Owolabi reportedly lured Favour to the Ikoyi-Ile area around Apomu and Ikire, Osun State, where he reportedly connived with his mother and Philip to kill and use the 22-year-old’s body parts for money ritual.
Favour departed from school on the 8th of December 2019 and branched to see her boyfriend who lured her to the aforementioned murder spot.
According to the grieving father, when they got to Ikoyi-Ile, it was learnt that Owolabi took the victim to the Fortress Hotel, where he allegedly drugged her and brought her to Philip’s church and used a pestle to smash her head while she was asleep.
Immediately after perpetrating the act, Philip was alleged to have used a knife to slit Favour’s throat.
The self-styled pastor reportedly ripped Favour’s chest open, removed her heart and used it to prepare a concoction for Owolabi and his mother to eat.
The concoction was said to be part of the rituals to boost the financial standing of Owolabi and his mother.
Favour’s sudden disappearance and the inability to communicate with her had become a source of concern to her parents, whose efforts to trace her to LASU and her hostel off the campus proved abortive.
The deceased’s father, David, said a case of a missing person was later reported to the police, who tracked her mobile phone’s location to Ikoyi-Ile.
While demanding justice for his daughter, David said the suspects, after perpetrating the crime, buried Favour’s remains in front of the church.
“She came home for a short visit and was to go back to school for her final examination. But while at home, she received a phone call from an anonymous person and told us that she would be seeing a friend on her way to school. But when it got late, I called her phone but it was unreachable; her mother could also not contact her.
“On Monday and Tuesday, she didn’t call and her number was still not going through, so, we went to search for her in school and her hostel, but she was nowhere to be found. I also went to hospitals and mortuaries to search for her but did not see her, so, I went to report at the Mowe Police Station.
“It was from the police station that a tracker traced her phone to Ikoyi-Ile in Osun State and we all mobilised to the place. The location looks like a jungle and the church was inside a very thick bush; the suspects were arrested. I saw a black Honda parked on the church premises and also where they buried my daughter in front of the church.
“I want justice. My wife is seriously ill; I had to rush her to the Biobatam Hospital in Iyana Ipaja, Lagos. Her illness is because of stress and as a result of what happened. This is a trying time for me.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said three suspects had been arrested, adding that the state Commissioner of Police, Kenneth Ebrimson, had transferred the case to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for proper investigation.
