Prophet, Victim’s Lover To Die By Hanging For Killing Final Year LASU Student


Justice Christiana Obadina of an Osun State High Court sitting in Ikire, has sentenced Philip Segun of Cherubim Church, Solution Chapel, Ikoyi-Ile to death over the killing of Lagos State University, LASU, final year student, Favour Daley-Oladele. 

The court also sentenced her boyfriend, Owolabi Adeeko, 23, to death by hanging for the murder of the final year Sociology student after luring her to Ikire from Lagos, while his mother, Bola Adeeko, 46, was convicted for eating human flesh. 

Adeeko and Daley-Oladele met in LASU and were dating before the man invited her to Ikoyi, Osun State, in December 2019.

But while on the visit, Daley-Oladele was lured to Philip’s church also in Ikoyi, where she was drugged and killed with a pestle. 

After harvesting some organs from her, the two men buried the deceased’s remains in a shallow grave within the church premises.

The organs harvested from the deceased were reportedly used to prepare a concoction for Owolabi’s mother to improve her business fortune which was nose-diving at the time.

The three defendants were first arraigned before a magistrates’ court in Apomu in January 2020 but were re-arraigned before High Court, Ikire in November 2021, for conspiracy and murder. 

During the trial, the prosecution team led by the Solicitor General and Permanent Secretary, Osun State Ministry of Justice, Mrs Adekemi Bello, who appeared with Ajibola Alade, told the court that under interrogation, Owolabi confessed to the police that he used his girlfriend to prepare a meal for money ritual for his mother.

The prosecution team, in the course of the trial, called the investigating police officer that worked on the case and eight other witnesses and tendered several exhibits before the court. 

The defendants did not call any witnesses but entered the witness box to testify in defence of their different roles in the matter. 

In her judgement, Justice Obadina said prosecuting counsel has proved her case beyond a reasonable doubt and found Prophet Philip Segun and Owolabi Adeeko guilty for murder and conspiracy, while Bola Adeeko was convicted for eating human flesh which is contrary to the law.

In his allocutor plea, defence counsel, Adeshina Olaniyan, pleaded with the court to temper justice with mercy.

The court sentenced Prophet Philip and Owolabi to death by hanging for murder and 14 years imprisonment for conspiracy.
