'Exorcist' killed his fiancee
Saturday 02 December 1995
Fanatical religious cult leader Nicholas Sagunro, 27, of East Ham in London, believed his mission was to cure "those possessed with demons and raise the dead in the name of Christ", the Old Bailey was told.
When he became convinced that his fiancee, Mary Odegbami, was possessed by the devil, he helped to starve her, then force-fed her with "Holy Communion". Judge Richard Hawkins told Sagunro: "You had a duty to care for [Miss Odegbami] but, as a result, she died from that treatment."
Sagunro, dressed in black, carried a heavy black-leather Bible as he was led to the cells. He had been convicted of manslaughter and false imprisonment at an earlier hearing, but remanded for reports. He denies the charges.
