A Mother Of Seven Murdered While Preaching In Abuja Streets by driveiwe(m): 11:46pm On Jul 09, 2016
A 42 year-old mother of seven, Mrs. Eunice Elisha, was on Saturday morning murdered by unknown assailants while evangelizing around Gbazango-West area of Kubwa, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory.

Eunice, who was a Deaconess at the Divine Touch Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Old NEPA Road, Phase 4, Kubwa, was said to have been cut in the neck and also stabbed in the stomach.

It was learnt that her killers left her in the pool of her blood with her bible, megaphone and cellphone.
Her remains were discovered by residents who alerted policemen who came to evacuate her to the police station where her husband went to identify her.
Speaking to newsmen at their residence, Eunice’ husband, Mr. Olawale Elisha, who is also a pastor at RCCG, said his wife had gone out to preach in the neighbourhood at about 5am only for him to hear the report of her murder.
Olawale, who expressed shock over the death of his wife, looked pensive and dejected as he spoke.
He said, “My wife always goes out early in the morning for ‘Morning Cry’ (evangelism). There was a particular day she went out and she told me that there is a mosque at the back where they commented about what she said. So I just cautioned her.
“This morning (Saturday), she went around 5am and I was still in bed because we did vigil which she participated in for a while because of the ‘Morning Cry’ she planned to undertake. Two of my boys are footballers, so they went to the field to play. And when they came back, they told me that they heard some footballers saying that some hoodlums had butchered a woman who was preaching early this morning.
“So, when I heard this, we trekked down in the shorts I was putting on and we didn’t see anybody but we saw blood on the ground. I asked a policeman around and he said it is true but that they had taken her to Phase 4 Police Station.
“I went to the station with my children and when we got there, I saw the lifeless body of my wife at the back of the police van and from there, she was taken to the mortuary. The incident happened between 5am and 5:30am because she usually goes out 5am and comes back 6am.”

Elisha who said Eunice was born on July 23, 1974, said they got married in July, 2000.

“My wife was so committed to anything that is of God. She was a reckless giver to God’s work, she rarely missed any programme in church. We have seven children,” he stated.
According to him, his wife had no quarrel with anyone that could have warranted her murder, describing her as a martyr.

“I see her as a martyr and she died for Christ. And whether the people are caught or not, they should forgive them; my prayer is that if they can accept Christ, that will be a gain to Christ,” the bereaved cleric said.

A lawyer and friend of the Elishas, David Ude-Chukwu, described Eunice’ murder as hate crime brought about by religious insensitivity, noting that the constitution allows every Nigerian to practise his chosen religion.

A senior police officer at the Kubwa Divisional Police Station, confirmed the incident, but referred our corespondent to the Divisional Police Officer, who was not available in the office.

The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, Manzah Anjuguri, could not be reached for comment as he did not respond to calls to his phone. He had yet to reply a text message as of the time of filing this report.

They should be exercising caution in dealing with those animals in d north. They are not human being at all. MY GOD AND THEIR ALLAH CAN NEVER BE THESAME. They worship a dead Allah/Muhammed or whatever they call the idol. JESUS IS LORD!

This incident happened close to my house, and bad enough there have been a murder closed to where she was killed 2 days back.

Also learnt that three people have been killed within the area in the past 5 days.

God help us all.

This sad and rather very unfortunate. But she was born 1974 and have 7 children 16 years after marriage? shocked

OK she was putting green to bed every other year. The husbands manhood is strong.

May God give the bereaved fortitude to bear the loss but these early morning preaching sef, was jesus going out in the wee hours to preach based on biblical accounts.?

Even the bible in proverbs says that shrewd person sees danger and avoids it but the foolish walks through and gets bloodied. The bible, the wisest authority

The husband's account is to spark religious sentiment,she could have been killed by ritualists for all we know.
I hope they get the perpetrators soonest.
There was a particular day she
went out and she told me that there is a mosque at the back
where they commented about what she said. So I just cautioned
her.

Her blood was simply used to water the seeds of one nigeria since her yoruba people believe that Igbos are the problem while living with hausas and fulani muslims is the best thing after sliced bread. This shouldn't be bad news.

May the blood of those who believe in one nigeria be used to water the seed of the fake unity.
