Segun Philip, the white-garment church Prophet who collaborated with Adeeko Owolabi and his mother Bola in the killing of a final-year student of the Lagos State University (LASU) Favour Daley-Oladele, has revealed that the money-ritual they embarked on did not work out.
The Pastor disclosed that he went through the money ritual process with Owolabi without the knowledge of his mother upon being paraded before newsmen.
He said; “What Owolabi and I discussed is that when they use the concoction once, the money will come once, but his mother doesn’t know that; we just told her that when she uses it, she will be receiving contracts from everywhere.“But the spirit did not bring money at all, the ritual did not work.”
23-year-old Owolabi who expressed regrets over the sad act said; “
There was a well there already which the church was planning on using but they abandoned it for years. It was there we put the remaining part of her body then I covered it with sand.
Owolabi said that “my dad has lost his job for some years and my mum has been the one helping the family; she also lost her job, but she started doing some contract jobs. After some time, she stopped receiving contracts.
“From that day, I started regretting my action, even before we were arrested.” The emotional father of the money ritual victim said they all looked forward to Favour becoming the first female graduate in the house.
He said; “It is quite emotional, having raised that girl for that number of years; Favour happens to be a golden girl to the family.
We waited for some years before having her, she went to school and when we envisaged that in a few months, she will be going for her NYSC, and start celebrating a female graduate in the house, then some people conspire to kill her is touching.
“All we want is justice for Favour and I believe it will serve as a deterrent to others who are in this kind of thing.”
