Fresh details have emerged concerning the gruesome murder of Eunice Elisha, a deaconess with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
The husband of the deceased, Olawale Elisha, has recalled happenings on the fateful day of his wife’s murder.
Mr. Elisha, who disclosed this during a recent interview with Premium times, said: “It was about 6: 30 to 7am. I was in bed, but I had woken up, from sleep. My children approached me and said that some footballers were discussing about a woman who was killed while she was preaching.
“We (Olawale and his daughter) strolled down to the place, about two or three hundred meters away from our house and we saw people gathered. We passed through the place where she had been murdered, but we did not know.
“We came back again and saw a police man. The officer confirmed what we had been told but said we should go to the Phase 4 police station. At that time, my daughter whose name is Jessica was already crying, but I tried to cheer her up and told her that the murdered preacher could not have been my wife.
“As we were entering the station gate, we saw a police van coming out of the station. My daughter looked back and saw something at the back of the police van and suddenly she cried.
“I then turned back and saw that part of my wife’s body was covered; from the chest upward. So we began to cry, I even fell and they carried me into the station.”
