A Deaconess at the Divine Touch Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Eunice Elisha, was murdered by unnamed suspects while she was preaching around the pipeline area of Kubwa, Abuja in the wee hours of Saturday (HERE).
Today, Wife of Vice President , Dolapo Osinbajo Visited The Family Of Murdered Evangelist to encourage the husband and her seven children which are still very young that she had left them for a better place.
Olawale, who expressed shock over the death of his wife, looked pensive and dejected as he spoke.
“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.
