The life of a final year Theatre Arts student of Lagos State University (LASU), Favour Daley-Oladele, has been cut short by daredevil boyfriend and his mother in the name of flaming love.
The devious boyfriend, Owolabi Adeeko and his blood-thirsty mother, Mrs Adeeko had lured Favour from Lagos to Osun State, where she was killed and dismembered her body.
Favour was asleep when the killer-boyfriend used a pestle to smash her head while ritualistic pastor quickly used a knife to cut off her neck, ripped open her chest.
Favour was declared missing by the Divisional Police headquarters at Mowe, Ogun State on December 8.
Detectives had swung into full scale technical and forensic investigation of the case.
Through the police investigation, Favour was traced to a white garment church in far away Ikoyi-Ile in Osun State pastored by one Segun Philip.

“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,” DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, State Police spokesman, said in the statement.
It added: “The said boyfriend was traced and apprehended immediately.
“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.
 “And 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.”

Police also said:”The  boyfriend confessed to the police “that that while the girl was sleeping, the pastor gave him a pestle with which he used to smashed Favour’s head 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.”
Investigations are still ongoing, according to the police who have vowed to ensure that all the suspects are brought to face the full weight of the law.
