Prophet, Boyfriend To Die By Hanging For Killing Final Year LASU Student

Philip Segun of Cherubim and Cherabum Church, Solution Chapel, Ikoyi-Ile, has been sentenced to prison by Justice Christiana Obadina of an Osun State High Court in Ikire. The court also handed down a death sentence by hanging to Owolabi Adeeko, the boyfriend of Favour Daley-Oladele, a final year student at Lagos State University.

The sentencing was for the gruesome murder of Favour, who was lured from Lagos to Ikire. Owolabi’s mother, Bola, was also found guilty of consuming human flesh.

Owolabi and Favour had been in a relationship for approximately one month when he convinced her to visit his uncle in Ikire, all the while planning with his mother and Prophet Segun to use her for a money ritual. Favour was subsequently killed in the church, where Owolabi struck her on the head with a pestle. Her organs were used for the ritual, and her body was buried in a shallow grave outside the church on December 8, 2019.

After the suspects were arrested and confessed to the murder, the police exhumed Favour’s body a few weeks later. The suspects were initially arraigned before the court on November 15, 2021, on charges of conspiracy and murder, as stipulated by sections 324 and 319(1) of the Criminal Code Cap. 34 Laws of Osun State, 2002.

During the trial, the prosecution, led by Mrs. Adekemi Bello from the Ministry of Justice, presented nine witnesses, including the investigating officer, and submitted various pieces of evidence. The convicts testified in their own defense without calling any additional witnesses.

In her verdict, Justice Obadina concluded that the prosecution had successfully proven its case beyond a reasonable doubt. As a result, Prophet Philip Segun and Owolabi Adeeko were found guilty of murder and conspiracy, while Bola Adeeko was convicted of consuming human flesh, which is against the law.

During the plea for leniency, the defense counsel, Adeshina Olaniyan, requested the court to show mercy.

Consequently, the presiding Judge sentenced Prophet Philip and Owolabi to death by hanging for murder, along with 14 years imprisonment for conspiracy. Bola, Owolabi’s mother, received a two-year prison term for consuming human flesh.

It should be noted that after his arrest, Owolabi confessed to using his girlfriend to prepare a ritual meal known as “victory soup” for himself and his mother in pursuit of wealth.
