Woman Accuses Husband of Using Child for Ritual

A mother, Oladunni Adebori, has urged Ondo State Police Command to investigate the death of her six-year old daughter, Esther Ajijolaoluwa, whom the father claimed died earlier in the month.

Adebori, in a petition to the Commissioner of Police, said she suspected her daughter must have been used for ritual purposes by her Father, Mr. Raphael Ajijolaoluwa.
It was gathered that the couple had separated about a year ago. Adebori believes her daughter might have been kidnapped and not dead yet.
She also urged the police in the petition written on her behalf by her lawyer, Mr. Mufutau Adegboye, to exhume the remains of the girl if actually she is dead as claimed by the father.
The bereaved mother said the circumstances surrounding the death of the girl were suspicious, stressing that the police must exhume the remains to confirm if the girl actually died or was kept for other purposes.
But the estranged husband, Ajijolaoluwa, dispelled the allegations, stressing that he informed the former wife’s family about the death of the girl before she was buried.
According to him, the court gave him custody of the children because the estranged wife said she was too busy to stay back at home to cater for the child when she was sick.

He accused the wife of causing the child’s ill-health before they got separated and added that he had spent a fortune to ensure the child stayed alive.

Reacting to the incident, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mrs. Funmilayo Odunlami, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said the police would investigate the matter.
She said once the petition is submitted to the command, the police would work on it by investigating the matter.
