The General Overseer of RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, also paid a condolence visit to the family of the deceased.

The killing of the innocent woman, who was only sharing the word of God according to her Christian belief, brings to recall the intolerance for people practicing other religion in the Muslim dominated north.
