Murdered Abuja preacher for burial on birthday

THE Abuja preacher, Eunice Olawale, who was murdered over a week ago, while evangelising, will be buried on July 23, her family has said.

Mrs Olawale, 42, was murdered in the early hours of Saturday, July 9, in Kubwa, a suburb of Abuja.

Her sister, Bola Fatuashi, said the burial activities would commence with a wake keep at 5.00 p.m. on Friday, July 22, at the New Life Assembly Parish of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Kubwa.

She said lying-in-state would begin at 8.00 a.m. on Saturday also in Kubwa.

She also said the burial day  of Eunice Olawale coincided with her birthday celebration.

Mrs Olawale is survived by aged parents, six siblings, husband and seven children.

Mrs Fatuashi had said that due to their aged father’s state of health, they could relay the news to him.

“We have not told my father, but my mother already knows. My mother is stronger than my aged father. We will all meet at the village, after everything, then find a way to relay the news to him, in such manner that will prevent another tragedy,” she said.
