The wife of the vice president, Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo, visited the family of the slain Abuja Female preacher yesterday.
Osinbajo, who is also a pastor in the RCCG, got to the family house about 1:30p.m.
She was received by the husband of the deceased, Pastor Elisha Olawale, children and a host of church members and loved ones.
In her condolence message, Osinbajo wrote: “May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.” The woman’s husband, Olawale, said his wife had been martyred for Christ.
Olawale said his wife had gone out to preach in the neighbourhood in her usual practice about 5a.m. on the Saturday only for him to hear the report of her murder.
He said: “My wife always goes out early in the morning on ‘Morning Cry’ to preach.
There was a particular day she went out and she told me that there is a mosque at the back where they commented about what she said. So, I just warned.
This morning (Saturday), she went around 5a.m. and I was still in bed because we did vigil which she participated for a while before she went to sleep because of the Morning Cry.
“Two of my boys are footballers; so, they went to the field to play. When they came back, they told me that they heard some footballers say that they butchered a woman preaching early this morning.
“So, when I heard this, we trekked down in the shorts I was putting on. We didn’t see anybody, but we saw blood on the ground.
I asked a policeman around and he said it was true but that they had taken her to Phase 4 Police Station.
I went to the station with my children and when we got there, I saw the lifeless body of my wife at the back of the police van.” Olawale described his wife as a devout Christian, who served God with everything she had.
He added: “My wife was so committed to anything that is of God. She was a reckless giver to God’s work.
She rarely missed any programme in church. I see her as a martyr who died for Christ.
Whether the people are caught or not, they should forgive them.
My prayer is that if they can accept Christ it will be a gain for Christ.”
Another resident of the area, who pleaded anonymity, said though the community engaged the services of private guards, the effort was not enough.
