Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo, the former deputy governor of Ondo State whose daughters’ lifeless body was found under the bead in her boy friend’s house on Sunday has said his daughter, Khadijat, was used for ritual.
The lifeless body of Khadijat, a student at the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, was found in the room of her boyfriend, Adeyemi Alao.
The former deputy governor on Monday alleged that the suspect killed and buried his daughter in his room and put his mattress on the grave.
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.”
According to the former deputy governor, the family later organised a special prayer which made the suspect to confess to his sister.
Lasisi said he wanted Alao to face the wrath of the law to serve as a deterrent to others who maybe disposed towards such acts in future.
Mr. Femi Joseph, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Ondo command while confirming the unfortunate incident to the News Agency of Nigeria, on Sunday had described the incident as saddening and very unfortunate.
“It is not a rumour but it is a fact that the young lady was found dead this morning and it is saddening and very unfortunate.
“We are on it and trying to get some facts but the Commissioner of Police will brief the press about the details in another 48 hours,” Joseph said.
