presence be made available in the area where the incidence occurred while also urging the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) administration to demolish all shanties which miscreants are said to have converted to their habitations.

A motion of urgent national importance on the matter was moved by Mr. Gabriel Kolawole (APC,Ondo) and was unanimously adopted by members through a voice vote. The House also urged the police to extend its investigation into similar killings states across the
country.

Olawole told the House that the murder of Mrs. Olawale in Kubwa, Abuja was gruesome and unacceptable. He said: "The House notes the gruesome murder of 42 years old Eunice Elisha, the wife of Redeemed Pastor, Olawale Elisha who was hacked to death in the
early hours of Saturday July 9 while preaching the gospel a few meters away from her house in Kubwa, an Abuja suburb by unidentified miscreants.

"The House further notes that the late Mrs. Eunice Olawale is from Ilawe (Ekiti State) while her husband, Pastor Elisha Olawale is from Ikare-Akoko in Ondo state. She was allegedly murdered by miscreants who were said to be annoyed by her early morning
preaching in the area."

According to him, the incident has caused ethnic tension in the FCT because "some are claiming she was killed by extremists while others say they are miscreants."

A minute silence was observed for the departed soul of Mrs.
Olawale.
