Alhaja Silifat Peller, aka Lady Peller, one of the widows of slain magician, late Alhaji Moshood Abiola Peller, popularly known as Professor Peller, has alleged that journalists had hands in the killing of his husband.
Professor Peller, a Muslim faithful, was killed 23 years ago in cold blood while observing the salat prayer at his Lagos residence by gunmen.
Lady Peller recently turned 73 years and in an interview with The Nation, pinned the blame of his murder on journalists saying “It was you journalists that sold him out. It was while they were interviewing him like this that he revealed too much about himself. He said if he was praying, there would be nothing on him. But after his prayer and he put on his agbada, if they faced him, nothing would happen to him.”
The magician couple dazzled the world performing magic both on stage and television around 80s.
