A female early morning preacher was on Saturday killed by unknown assailants in Bolar – pipeline area of Kubwa in Abuja.
The deceased is believed to be a wife of a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
Though details are still sketchy, it was gathered that she was attacked few minutes after she started her usual early morning preaching.
Residents of the area claimed that they heard her preach as usual around 5am but found her lifeless body around 6am.
A male resident, who sought anonymity said, he heard her voice early in the morning.
He said: “I heard her voice as usual in the morning around 5am preaching and at a point, her voice faded.
“By the time I woke up to start my morning chores, I started hearing people say that a dead body has been found in my area.
“On getting there, I discovered that it was the body of the woman preacher. She is such a nice and jovial person, she doesn’t deserve to die at all and if at all, not in that manner.”
On how the woman was found, he said: “She was practically slaughtered. Her legs were injured and she was lying in the pool of her own blood before policemen came to evacuate her body.
