Family and friends lay body of victim to rest

Reports have it that the deceased was killed by some youths on the order of an Islamic cleric who tried to driver her away from the area where she was preaching.

 

Olawale, who is a member of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), was sharing the Christian doctrine when she was attacked and killed on the street.

She was buried on Saturday, July 23, 2016.

According to reports, the order to murder the victim was given by an Islamic cleric, who reportedly told her to leave the area.

Youths of the area, in an apparent resentment for the preacher pelted stones at her until she was killed.

Olawale’s death has caused sadness to Christians and highly placed members of the society, such as Oludolapo, the wife of the Vice-President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.

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.
