The former deputy governor of Ondo State, Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo, has confirmed rumours that his daughter was used for money rituals by her boyfriend.
Khadijat, who was a student at the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, was discovered dead in the room of her boyfriend, Adeyemi Alao, on Sunday.
Reacting to the mysterious death, the former deputy governor alleged that the daughter's boyfriend killed and buried her in his room and covered the grave with his mattress.
He said: “Somebody called us that she was missing on Monday, July 2, 2018, and we got in touch with her friends in the school.
“I had sent her money on previous Friday; the usual thing is that when she got bank alert, she would call me back to thank me. But I did not get any response from her that day.
“On Monday, we called her number and we did not get through. We got a text that the phone was not good and that she would call back.”
Lasisi said his family later organised a special prayer which made the suspect confess to his sister.
The ex-deputy governor called on appropriate authorities to ensure Alao faces the full wrath of the law to serve as a deterrent to others.
Recall that DailyNaija reported on Sunday that there were growing rumours that the deceased was used for money rituals. This disclosure by the erstwhile deputy governor puts an end to the speculations.
