Unknown assailants have reportedly murdered a 55-year-old wife of a Pastor of Lord’s Chosen Church identified as Eunice Omaye Odoba.
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that the mother of three was reportedly stabbed on the chest in her home at Perfect Avenue in Otukpo town of Benue State.
According to report, Odoba was found in the pool of her blood after members of her church from the Lord’s Chosen branch in Otukpo, checked up on her to know why she did not attend the Sunday service.
The body of the pastor’s wife was evacuated and deposited in the mortuary by the policemen who were notified of the incident.
The deceased’s younger brother, Adoba Mac while narrating how the incident occurred told journalists in Makurdi;
“We had a family meeting earlier. We finished the family meeting around 6:30 am yesterday (Sunday) she was rushing to go to church and I was the one who took her on my motorcycle to a junction to her house and we parted.
“Only for me to receive a call from someone who was working around her house around 3:00 pm (the area is just being developed) that I should rush down to my sister’s house.
“On getting there I saw some of her church members who I later learnt said that they did not see her in the church which is very unusual and they decided to check her at home.
“When I saw her lying down in the pool of her blood, I also discovered that she was stabbed at the topmost part of her breast.”
Mac also revealed that his late sister was alone in the house at the time of the incident as her three children – the female, a student of School of Nursing in Enugu and two male, one of them a youth corp member while the other a banker in Abuja, were all away from home.
He added that the deceased’s husband left for his missionary trip to Equitorial Guinea in February, this year.
