Runsewe: Murdered LASU student ritual not culturally acceptable way of making money


Mr Olusegun Runsewe, the Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), has joined other Nigerians to condemn the alleged murder of a final-year student of the Lagos State University (LASU).

The 400-level Favour Daley was allegedly murdered in cold blood by her supposed boyfriend along with a fake pastor.

Runsewe in a statement signed and made available to newsmen by his media aide, Mr Frank Meke, said that such an act was against the culture of Nigerians.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the student, Miss Favour Daley-Oladele, a final-year student of LASU was reportedly killed in Osun by her friend and her friend’s mother for money ritual.

Runsewe said that the rise among Nigerian youths’ insatiable quest for money through rituals had never been part of our culture. The D-G said that the trend should be condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians. He said,

“The killing of Miss Favour Daley-Oladele, a final-year student of the Lagos State University by her friend and mother for money ritual has nothing to do with the culturally accepted means of money-making.

“Killing somebody for money ritual is never business and has nothing to do with being poor or lacking anything good in life. “It is a spirit not associated with our people and our way of life.”

Runsewe said that the NCAC would, from 2020, embark on nationwide cultural advocacy that would discourage Nigerians from embarking on illegal and illegitimate means of becoming wealthy.
