Millions of Nigerians have been shocked by the story of how Bola Babatunde Adeeko and her son, Owolabi Adeeko lured Lagos State University (LASU) student, Miss Favour Daley-Oladele to a Cherubim & Seraphim Church at Ikoyi-Ile in Osun State where they killed and ate her for money ritual.
However, this was what she posted about her son on her Facebook page sometime April 17, 2019.
She wrote; We give thanks to God. And we are the one who is. The one who has a miracle, N’nu Enit’ araiye nyo; You are the one who is the one. He is the one who loves us. You are the one who loves you Take care of us. CONGRATULATIONS ON UR DAY SON.”
She also posted in July 29, 2019, about her mother’s demise;
“Mama mi Toto, Iya Bola as u r usually called, it’s exactly 2yrs now dat u left dis sinful.world, I missed ur motherly love, may ur soul continue rest in peace. Ma sun laya oluwa re.”
Ogun State Police Command spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi confirmed the crime committed by the mother and son in a statement.
Oyeyemi said: “A self- acclaimed pastor of a white garment church, Segun Philip, 42, was arrested with a 23-year-old man, Adeeko Owolabi, over the killing of a final year Sociology student of the Lagos State University (LASU), Favour Daley-Oladele.”
“The deceased was reported to have left home to an unknown destination since December 8 and had not been seen since then; hence she was reported missing by her parents at Mowe Police Station.”
“The DPO Mowe Division, Marvis Jayeola, detailed his detectives to unravel the mystery behind the sudden disappearance of the 22-year- old undergraduate. 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 headed by Pastor Segun Philip.”
“On getting to the church, the self-acclaimed pastor was 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 boyfriend was traced and apprehended immediately.”
“He confessed to the police that the deceased was his girlfriend and that he lured her to Ikoyi-Ile where he had perfected plans with the so-called Pastor Philip to use her for money making ritual.”
“He stated further that while the girl was sleeping, the pastor gave him a pestle which he used to smash the head of the girl and the pastor quickly used a knife to cut off her neck, ripping open her chest and removing 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 said he decided to go into money ritual because things were not going well with his parents economically, most especially his mother, who used to be the breadwinner of the family; and when he sought 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.”
“Police Commissioner Kenneth Ebrimson has directed that the suspects be transferred to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for investigation.”
“The police boss, who described the gruesome murder as a high degree of wickedness, has vowed to ensure that the suspects face the full wrath of the law.”
