Murdered Abuja preacher: My mother was killed like a chicken says daughter

11 July 2016, 11:07

Abuja - The first daughter of the late deaconess, Jessica Olawale, who was hacked to death by suspected Islamic extremists said her mother was killed like a chicken, Vanguard reports.

The Late Eunice Olawale was murdered at about 5:30a.m. on Saturday at Pipeline, Kubwa, Abuja, as she went for early morning preaching close to her residence.

Her throat was slit, with her head rested on the bible she used for preaching.

The 15-year-old Senior Secondary School 2 student, said: “Everybody is just saying it is well, nobody can understand how I feel.

“She is innocent; she didn’t do anybody any harm. She uses just her megaphone and bible; just preaching. They just killed her like a chicken and left her there.”

The husband of the victim, who is also a pastor at RCCG, said his wife always goes out early in the morning for ‘Morning Cry.’

He said there was a particular day she went out and came back saying some Muslims in a Mosque close-by made negative comments about her.

Six suspects have however been arrested by the police in connection with the murder according to Nation.

The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (CIID), is leading the team probing the murder.

The Commissioner of Police in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Alkali Usman, said he ordered the investigation.

The wife of the Vice President, Dolapo Osinbajo, visited the family, sympathised with them and prayer session was held for the family.
