Pastor Adeboye visits family of murdered preacher in Abuja

THE General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Tuesday morning, visited the family of the late Assistant Pastor of the Divine Touch Parish of the church in Abuja, who was murdered while evangelising on last Saturday morning.


The 42 year old Mrs Eunice Elisha was murdered in a cold blood while preaching around Gbazango, Kubwa in the Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).


The wife of the vice president, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo, also a pastor of the RCCG, had also paid a condolence visit to the deceased’s husband and children on Sunday afternoon.


Meanwhile, the General Overseer of the church, Pastor Adeboye, at about 6am on Tuesday, visited the husband of the deceased, Pastor Olawale Elisha and the family to console them.


In another development, it was learnt that the burial of the murdered female preacher may be delayed as the family said that the government and the Nigerian Police Force advised that autopsy should be carried out before her burial.


Tribune Online gathered that the late Eunice Olawale was initially scheduled to be buried on Thursday July 14, but the Nigerian Police and the Federal Government advised the family to hold on until an autopsy is conducted on the deceased.


A reliable source from the family of the deceased disclosed this to Tribune Online when it visited the family in kubwa on Tuesday.


It will be recalled that there has been a lot of controversies surrounding the death of late Mrs Olawale, this could be the reason the government and the Nigerian Police requested that her body should be subjected to an autopsy to ascertain the cause of her death.
