Eunice Elisha was killed by unknown hoodlums while preaching in the early hours of Friday around the pipeline area of Kubwa. The 41-year-old Deaconess at RCCG was cut in the neck, stabbed in the stomach and was left in the pool of her blood with her bible, megaphone, and cellphone.
Speaking about the sordid incident, the deceased husband tells newsmen;
My wife 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. 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.
