The family of the late Favour Daley-Oladele has said that an order from the Lagos State Ministry of Health stopped them from burying her remains at the Atan Cemetery, in the Yaba Local Government Area of the State.
The PUNCH had reported that Favour, the daughter of a Pastor, David Daley-Oladele, was gruesomely murdered in a conspiracy involving her lover, Owolabi Adeeko; his mother, identified simply as Mrs Adeeko; and the pastor of a white garment church, Segun Philip, in the Ikoyi-Ile area of Osun State.
Owolabi and his accomplices after being arrested for perpetrating the crime had confessed to killing Favour. They also confessed to have dismembered her corpse and used some vital parts of her body for money ritual.
Speaking at the Atan Cemetery, Favour’s uncle, Solomon Toyeme, said the family had mobilised to the ministry of health to retrieve her corpse for the burial when they were instructed to suspend the arrangement for the benefit of the investigation.
Toyeme said, “An order from the Lagos State Ministry of Health instructed us not to go ahead with Favour’s burial today. We were told that some procedures need to be taken and that we need to stop the burial so that we won’t lose the case.
“The family has made the —arrangement and were at the Lagos State Ministry of health to retrieve her corpse for burial when we received the call.”
