RCCG Deaconess and a Mother-of-Seven Stabbed to Death while Preaching in Abuja


Eunice Elisha, 42, was murdered by unknown assailants while evangelizing around Gbazango-West area of Kubwa, Abuja, yesterday morning. Eunice, 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. The FCT Police Command said it has arrested some suspects in connection with the killing.

Speaking to journalists at their residence, Eunice’s husband, Olawale Elisha, who is also a pastor at the RCCG, said: “My wife always went out early in the morning for ‘Morning Cry’ (evangelism). There was a particular day she went out and she told me that there was a mosque at the back where they commented about what she said.

So I just cautioned her. This morning (Saturday), she went out. Two of my boys are footballers, thus, they went to the football pitch 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.

When I heard this, wearing only a pair of shorts, we walked towards the area my son had said the incident occurred; we didn’t see anybody but we saw blood on the ground. I asked a policeman around and he said it was true but that they had taken the body to Phase 4 Police Station.

I went to the police station with my children and when we got there, I saw the lifeless body of my wife at the back of a police van. She was later taken to a mortuary. 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 the church. We have seven children. 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."
