It seems too quick to forget the slaughter of 42-year-old RCCG
Evangelist, Eunice Elisha Olawale on Saturday, July 9, 2016, at the
Gbazango-West area of Kubwa, a satellite town in the Federal Capital
Territory, Abuja around 5:30.
Though her remains were buried on
Saturday, July 23, 2016, at the Gudu cemetery Abuja, the news is just
getting to her 72-year-old father, Pa Ayodele Akun.
The news of his daughter’s mindless murder had been kept from Pa
Ayodele Akun, because of his ill health in the last two months, even
after burial which had in attendance two aides of President Muhammmadu
Buhari – Babachir Lawal, Secretary to the Government of the Federation
and Femi Adesina, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and
Though family members “lacked the courage” to break the news to their
father, he couldn’t be kept in the dark for too long. According to a
facebook post by Apata Emmanuel, the deceased’s cousin, the old man
received the news with the greatest shock and is in pains. He wrote: “I
sincerely solicit for your prayers for Baba Akun, the father of my late
sister Eunice Mojisola Olawale. He hasn’t come out of the shock after
the news of the death of his beloved daughter was broken to him today
(Wednesday) in his house Itawure, Efon Alaaye, Ekiti.
“He will be taken back to Lagos tomorrow for medical attention”.
The mother of the deceased, Elisabeth Akun, who was informed of the
unfortunate incident long ago and took grievously ill on reception of
her daughter’s tragic death, has now been discharged from the General
Hospital, Ilawe-Ekiti, few days after she was hospitalized. She is yet
to fully regain her sanity. Emmanuel wrote on Facebook, “Mummy Elisabeth
Akun said ‘I prayed enough but if God can still allow this to happen to
me I know His grace will be sufficient for me’.”
