Ex-Wife, Adebori Oladunni Accuses Husband Of Alleged Kidnap Of Their 6-year-old Daughter For Ritual
Adebori Oladunni, a 35-year-old mother of three from Ondo state, has accused his estranged husband, Raphael Ajijolaoluwa, of kidnapping their six-year-old daughter for rituals.
As a result, Adebori claimed in a plea to the Ondo state police commissioner, Bolaji Salami, that “she suspected that her daughter Esther must have been used for ritual purposes if, in fact, she is dead as claimed by the father.”
Adebori, whose marriage to Raphael Ajijolaoluwa fell apart, last year in the state’s Omifon area, claimed that “all signs pointed to the fact that the child must either be kidnapped or utilized for ritual purposes.”
She was hopeful that her daughter was not dead, as her father stated.
According to the petition made by her lawyer, Mr Mufutau A Adegboye, the police must exhume the girl’s bones if she is indeed dead as alleged by her father.
According to her, the girl was in good health when she saw her at school earlier, and she questioned what could have happened to her without her knowing about it.
“Sometimes in 2019, our client petitioned the customary court for dissolution of their eleven-year-old association due to belligerent behaviour and atrocities exhibited and committed by Mr Ajijolaoluwa Raphael,” according to the petition.
“The court ordered among others that the custody of the three children should be with Ajijolaoluwa Raphael while our client should be permitted to visit her except at night.
“But surprisingly in deviating to the order of the court, Mr Ajijolaoluwa Raphael did not give our client access to her children despite the fact that both of them are living in the same town.
“Surprisingly as Friday 6th August 2021, information got to our client that the last born of our client Esther Ajijolaoluwa was dead on Tuesday, 3rd of August and was buried without the knowledge of our client. Our client reported the matter at Ore Divisional Police Station.
“It was when Mr Ajijolaoluwa Raphael reported at the station that he confirmed to our client that truly Ajijolaoluwa Esther had died and since been buried without the knowledge of our client.”
Adebori stated that the circumstances surrounding the girl’s ‘death’ are suspicious and that the Police must exhume the remains to determine whether the girl is indeed dead or is being preserved for other purposes.
When contacted, Funmilayo Odunlami, the state police spokeswoman, stated that the state command would investigate the petition and get to the bottom of the problem.
Odunlami said “once the woman had submitted the petition to the command, the Police would definitely work on it by investigating the matter.
” Although, I will confirm from the appropriate department where the petition you are talking about has been submitted. But once it is submitted, I can assure you that we will get to the root of the matter.”
