The federal government vowed that the killers of the Ekiti-State-born preacher with the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Evangelist, Eunice Elisha Olawale, in Kubwa area of the Federal Capital Territory will not go unpunished.


President Muhamadu Buhari, represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir David Lawal, made the promise during the burial service held in RCCG FCT 2 Provincial Headquarters in Kubwa.

The 42-year-old mother of seven was murdered while preaching in the Gbazango -West area of Kubwa, a satellite town, in the Bwari Area Council on Saturday, July 9 2016.

Meanwhile, tears flowed on Saturday at the Gudu Cemetery in the FCT, where the deceased was buried.

While paying their last respect to their mother, the children of the deceased performed the ‘ash to ash’ ceremony at the cemetery and wept uncontrollably.

Some sympathisers who could not hold back themselves joined them to mourn the deceased who was described as a martyr.

Lawal said, “As a government, we want to inform you that all the perpetrators of this act will not go free and will be brought to book. All Nigerians should be safe and free to practice their religion anywhere. Government’s resolve is to fish out the perpetrators. We pray to God not only to forgive them, but pray that the perpetrators seek for repentance. On behalf of the President and the Federal Republic of Nigeria, may God console you”



  1. I am a staunch supporter of Buhari’s administration, but this comment came far too late! I think you guys can do a lot better. God bless Nigeria!

  2. where are the female protesters for the two APC senators,is the death of the female preacher not enough reason for protest by these female groups? it is obvious they were sponsored and paid for the protest,what a shame!

  3. Why won’t those Ashawos from lagos protesting for tinibu, come over to protest over the death of this lady.

    I forgot, Ashawos can only fight for another Ashawo.

  4. Every injustice done by man to man shall SURELY be REDRESSED in life. If not now, assuredly in the life to come. No impunity with God, the creator of all things.

  5. Buhari is nt acting to stop all these killings becos the killers were muslims of the same faith. The blood of those killed women are on his families head.

  6. O Lord let the history of Christianity be re-written side by side Sharia in Nigerian Constitution so that religious superiority and derogatory killings be laid to rest in Nigeria. (Amen).
