Body Of Student Killed By Pastor, Lover Exhumed By Police
Homicide experts from the Osun State Police Command have, on Saturday, exhumed the body of the murdered female Lagos State University student, Seun Favour.
ElombahNews had earlier this week reported that the late Seun Favour was murdered by a pastor, Segun Philips and her lover, Owolabi Adeeko, in Ikoyi-Ile, Osun State, for ritual purposes.
The State Commissioner of Police, Babatunde Kokumo led the team during the exhumation of the corpse.
Speaking to journalists at the crime scene, Philips, who was led around the scene of the crime alongside other two suspects, said he killed the deceased to experiment with what he read in the ‘Seven Book of Moses.’
He was led along with two other suspects, Owolabi Adeeko, and his mother, Mrs Adeeko.
He that the late Seun Favour was thrown into a shallow well where they dismembered her and removed some organs and thereafter buried her.
Speaking the journalists, Osun Police Commissioner, Babatunde Kokumo, said that owing to the incident, other churches in the area would be investigated.
He said, “We are all aware of the gruesome killing of a student of LASU. The killing has been traced to Ikoyi-Ile.
“We have brought our homicide experts to exhume and help in the furtherance of the investigations started by the Ogun State Police Command with a view to prosecuting the suspects.
“It is a gruesome murder and the whole thing is quite horrible. We will not fold our arms and watch lawless citizens take laws into their hands, destroying people’s lives.
“We have been informed that we have a number of churches in this community. It is our responsibility to conduct our investigation.
“What we are doing is intelligence policing driven by the people’s needs.
“If the communities are making us know that they are no longer comfortable with the number of churches or the caliber of such people running the churches, then it becomes our responsibility to conduct an investigation on their activities and check them.
“My advice is that parents have a lot roles to play. We have a lot of children in schools, the parents owe them the responsibility to make to know that apart from their academic pursuit they must see to their moral training.
“It is only when the two are well combined that you can have a complete human being. They should see to the peer group they belong to.”
