<By Richmond C. Amadi>

42-year-old mother of seven, Mrs. Eunice Elisha, was on Saturday morning murdered by unknown assailants while evangelizing around Gbazango-West area of Kubwa, a satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory.

Eunice, who was a Deaconess at the Divine Touch Parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Old NEPA Road, Phase 4, Kubwa, was said to have been cut in the neck and also stabbed in the stomach.
It was learnt that her killers left her in the pool of her blood with her Bible, megaphone, and cell phone.

Her remains were discovered by residents who alerted policemen who came to evacuate her to the police station where her husband went to identify her.

Speaking to newsmen at their residence, Eunice’ husband, Mr. Olawale Elisha, who is also a pastor at RCCG, said his wife had gone out to preach in the neighbourhood at about 5 am only for him to hear the report of her murder.

Olawale, who expressed shock over the death of his wife, looked pensive and dejected as he spoke.

He said, “My wife always goes out early in the morning for ‘Morning Cry’ (evangelism). There was a particular day she went out, and she told me that there is a mosque at the back where they commented about what she said. So I just cautioned her.

“This morning (Saturday), she went around 5 am and I was still in bed because we did vigil which she participated in for a while because of the ‘Morning Cry’ she planned to undertake. Two of my boys are footballers, so they went to the field to play. And when they came back, they told me that they heard some footballers saying that some hoodlums had butchered a woman who was preaching early this morning.

“So, when I heard this, we trekked down in the shorts I was putting on, and we didn’t see anybody, but we saw blood on the ground. I asked a policeman around, and he said it is true but that they had taken her to Phase 4 Police Station.

“I went to the station with my children, and when we got there, I saw the lifeless body of my wife at the back of the police van and from there, she was taken to the mortuary. The incident happened between 5 am and 5:30 am because she usually goes out 5 am and comes back 6 am.”
Elisha, who said Eunice was born on July 23, 1974, said they got married in July 2000.

“My wife was so committed to anything that is of God. She was a reckless giver to God’s work; she rarely missed any programs in the church. We have seven children,” he stated.

According to him, his wife had no quarrel with anyone that could have warranted her murder, describing her as a martyr.

“I see her as a martyr, and she died for Christ. And whether the people are caught or not, they should forgive them; my prayer is that if they can accept Christ, that will be a gain to Christ,” the bereaved cleric said.
A lawyer and friend of the Elishas, David Ude-Chukwu, described Eunice’ murder as hate crime brought about by religious insensitivity, noting that the constitution allows every Nigerian to practise his chosen religion.

A senior police officer at the Kubwa Divisional Police Station confirmed the incident but referred our correspondent to the Divisional Police Officer, who was not available in the office.

The FCT Police Public Relations Officer, Manzah Anjuguri, could not be reached for comment as he did not respond to calls to his phone. He had yet to reply a text message as of the time of filing this report.

    Anyone killing in the name of religion does not really understand what he/she is worshiping, nor the God he/she is worshiping. Those involved in this kind of wicked act are actually saying my religion is the religion of criminals.

    Another story of a christian being murdered because of her faith. This, just like other killings done by this fanatics will be swept under the carpet. Why cant they allow for mutual respect of one’s religion while in the north. Yet in the south and east, they practice their religion without any molestation. May God have mercy.

If u decide to read d word of God upside down and den practice it like dat den dats left to u cos it’s practically not d word of God u reading anymore. D killing is barbaric and d murderers should be brought to justice be dem Muslims or not

    The Christians and Muslims don’t serve the same God, for the Muslims their god encourages the killing of a life they did not creat, the Christian faith preached, peace, love and repentance through Christ Jesus…….A muslem can never be yr brother if you are a Christian.

    It is a show of shame and an act of ideological contradiction to stand and defend a religion that preaches peace bad yet again, at every slightest provocation, they brutally slaughter their perceived enemies.

    Is it Islam the problem or the way the founders of the religion percieved non followers. The truth there’s a golden rule and it applies to all no matter your religion. Let Christians continue to be peaceful God will fight for us and the glory of the Lord God will manifest soon. You can’t eat your cake and have it. Just wait a while the glory of God will manifest.

    dey said Muslim nd Christian serve same God that is a lie. The Muslim god is totally different from the Christian God.God almighty, father of jesus christ God of peace love forgiveness can never b the god of Muslim. wen I look around the world and c the population of the Muslims I shade tear for them cus the are taken the wrong direction .Islam is totally satanic planed by the devil to lead people out of the face of God. God almighty can not tell u to fight jihad can not tell u to burn churches ( CHURCH IS THE TEMPLE OF GOD AND THE BRIDEGROOM OF JESUS ON HIS SECOND COMING) to kill Christians so therefor people of Islam go and examine ur religion and fellow the right path.
    sister in the LORD may your soul rest on perfect peace for u will b surely rewarded by God.amen

    I have always try to avoid speaking either ‘FOR’ or ‘AGAINST’ any religions, be it Islam, Christianity or Traditionalists but I am pushed to do so tonight as conscience and the supernatural force in me demand that I should throw a little light out of the researches I have once carried out in my quest for truth. My expository here is not to condemn Islam because it is a religion i respect ‘to an extent’; but only trying to buttress some bitter truth.

    Islam has historically developed in four stages: 1. Evangelism. 2. Consolidation of power. 3. Revolution 4. Islamic State. Muslims would love to see Canada and the USA become Islamic states but are only at stage one: Evangelism! Islam has not changed its methods since Muhammad (S.A.W) 1400 years ago. Muslims are tolerant, when they are powerless, but this veneer of toleration evaporates when an Islamic state is formed.

    The Qur’an says: “Fight and slay the pagans [Christians] wherever ye find them and seize them, confine them, and lie in wait for them in every place of ambush” (Surah 9:5) “The term Islam in the lexicon of the Arabs means ‘Submission’ to God.

    The Truth about Jihad Holy War or Holy Struggle? What is the record of history and what does the Qur’an actually say? Evangelistic activity by Christians is considered aggression against Muslims and Islam and in Islamic states it is illegal!


    2:190-193. “Fight in the cause of God, those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out: For tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; But fight them not at the sacred Mosque unless they first fight you there; But if they fight you, Slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.”

    4:74-77 Let those fight in the cause of God who sell the life of this world for the Hereafter, to him who fighteth in the cause of God, whether he is slain or gets victory, soon shall We give him a reward of great (value).

    4:95-96 Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of God with their goods and their persons. God hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home). Unto all (in Faith) Hath God promised good: But those who strive and fight Hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward: Ranks specially bestowed by Him, and Forgiveness and Mercy. For God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    5:51 O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily God guideth not a people unjust.

    9:5 But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (trick in war for deceiving and outwitting the enemy); but if they repent, and establish regular prayers and practice regular charity, then open the way for them: for God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

    9:14 Fight them, and God will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you (to victory) over them.

    9:29 “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and his apostle nor a

    For me as Pastor and belonging to the same faith as the victim of this heinous crime, I don’t think the big problem is Islam or how it is practiced although those two are parts of the problem. But as far as I am concerned, the big problem here is the government of the land. It is not strange that some people will decide to take the law to their hands and do whatever their distorted mind and distorted religion push them to do; but should they get away with it? Should the government leave it for the Christians and Muslims and police to handle it? What has the president said about it? Is it proper to let the V. P be the one to speak about it being a Christian himself? What message is President Buhari sending to the Christians and Muslims? He is a fulani man, how did he respond to the fulani herdsmen violence, again, he is a Muslim, and some Muslims just killed a Christian for whatever reason, religion or not, what has Buhari said? I think that is where the problem is.

    I would start by asking you a question according to your write up. Do you know what is PAGAN in meaning? Because if you know what it means to be call a pagan you should not have spoken like that. PAGAN means “an offensive term that deliberately insults somebody who does not acknowledge the God of the Bible, Torah, or Koran”. OR “an offensive term that deliberately insults somebody’s non belief in religion, way of life, or degree of knowledge”. I hope you are clear in that area.

    Let me ask you this questions, suppose you yourself are the GOD ALMIGHTY that people are worshiping and you created all this things that everybody are enjoying now include human that you said that they should be killing and you yourself cannot create a finger nail.

    somehow, somebody from somewhere is destroying them without you giving him or her order to do so and your no ho you suffered to built all this things, will you be happy? What will be your judgment over that person? Please judge yourself.

    You spoke about “submission to God” which of the God or gods? Is he the one that you are killing what He took time to created? Because if it is submission to Holy God you not destroyed or killed what He love most and you yourself will do at what He commanded to do which is for you as a human being to worship Him and praise Him by giving thanks to Him always. As you have commanded the people to be killing what God loved most; if you are that GOD what will you do to that fellow? My brother SHAME ON YOU.

    My brother, i put it to you change from that your acts of killing what God had created, if YOU are truly submit to that God as you said not this (god) then, DO GOD’S WILL. May God almighty be with you and bless you, Amen.

    Psalms 74v7 -11,18-23. Also pray Joel3v16-21.
    They have cast fire into your sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of thy name to the ground. They said in their hearts, let us destroy them together : they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land. We see not our signs: there is no more prophet : neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.
    O, God, how long shall the adversary reproach? Shall the enemy blaspheme thy name forever?
    Why withdraws though thy hand, working salvation in the midst of the earth.
    Remember that the enemies reproached, O Lord, and that the foolish people have blaspheme thy name. O deliver not the soul of thy turtle dove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of thy poor for ever. Have respect unto thy covenant : for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.
    O let not the oppressed return ashamed : let the poor and needy praise thy name.
    Arise, O God, plead thine own cause: remember how the foolish man reproached thee daily. Forget not the voice of thine enemies : the tumult of those that rise up against thee increase the continually.

    Well every body have a point, but to me there is no place in Bible and Qu’ran that says you should kill someone else because of your religion. To my best of understanding and the little one i know in Islam Allah has not give anybody the power to kill his fellow man because of ( HIM).
    The way we behave in East, South, West is different from the North and what i see there is there leader not giving them or telling them the truth about there Religion. 2, Look at the Iseal and syral, see the way the Iseal are killing syrayan so what can you say about that it’s not the matter of religion but us like one of the writers says people kill people not God of your religion it is you and me. As for the woman may her soul rest in peace.

    Muslims or Christians are not the problem, the devil is the problem, killing one another in the name of religion isn’t the best, the heart of man is desperately wicked who can know it, no respect for life, blood no longer mean anything again, the life of men don’t mean anything to us, well may God help us in Nigeria, the way things are going in this country only God can interval. No one knows who killed her but God does. Don’t aportion blames on any religion

    Christmas don’t hate Muslims in like degree as Muslims do. Essential to this show of hate is the teachings of these two religions to their adherents as codified in their Holy Books. Take the Koran take the Bible. Christian evangelism seeks to preach repentance unto sin perceiving unbelievers as key targets unto faith with equal treatment and placement before God. Jesus came for the sinners to preach repentsnce unto them with love. Not having declared them infidels snd enemies to the faith. But tge Koran ab initio sees every non muskim ss an infidel snd enemy to Allah. It orders the killing if such by the Muslims. Thosecwho killed Eunice acted on the instructions of lslamic religion ss taught from the Koran. So no Muslim will condemn tgeir act, not even Mr Predident Buhsri who is even more fanstical as a Fulani.

Remember that our Lord Jesus himself said that there will come a time that those who kill you as a christian will think they are doing God a service. These people are in darkness, troubling the whole world and fulfilling prophesy in the Bible. Lets be prepared for His coming for He is at the door step. Love you all including our Muslim brothers and Sister. Our sister is in the bossom of the Lord. Halleluya!!!

    I write with a heavy heart seeing the picture of the woman murdered as if she was an animal. No any right thinking human being will even kill a domestic animal that way. If these killings is actually an instruction from d quran, if this is a holy jihad as professed, if this killing is a fight for God,then Islam is nothing but satanic. I am beginning to think that this is no longer one Nigeria therefore, our fight now is to strongly agitate for the division of this country on. D physical which is already divided by the spirit of Islam. It was d killing of a deeper life pst’s wife in Kano d other tym, d stabbing of a christian brother in Kaduna and now d killing of another pastor’s wife in Abuja. Just today I read dt d abductor of Ese Oruru has been bailed and d other things that may follow may be just a mere procedures and d boy goes to enjoy himself. Little did the Christians knows that the change Buhari so much preached about was a forceful change from Christianity to Islam. Change from justice to injustice. The attached by fulani herds men on christian populated state since Buhari came to power without any serious action or order from Mr. president is a pointer to the fact that he is on a mission as claimed bt Governor Fayose of Ekiti state. My prayer tonight is that may God comfort mrs unice family and judge her killers and their supporters. Amen

    Nigeria is a secular state. Every citizen has a right to practice his or her religion.
    Religious intolerance in the northern part of the country has assumed a frightening dimension and the government of the day has not helped matters because the perpetrators of this heinous crimes against humanity are not brought to book in most cases. So they become more emboldened to commit such crimes again.

    I want to use this platform to express my Disappointment on Sahara Reporters and also to Call Attention of Both National and International Media Homes, most especially News Casters, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, we have had it ENOUGH, stop using ISLAMIC religion name on TERORRISM, because of the deed of few bad eggs among MUSLIMS, whose claimed to be MUSLIMS while they are NOT.

    Because, More then 1.8 Billion MUSLIMS didn’t uphold the names of bad ones among you CHRISTIANS or the saying of your HOLY BIBLE to callEd you TERORRISTS, because we’d believed TERORRISM doesn’t have a Religion. And if you said it has I can ASSURE YOU, its your RELIGION TAUGH that brought the TERORRISM to the whole world.

    The act of murder is rampant in the Bible. In much of the Bible, especially the Old Testament, there are laws that command that people be killed for absurd reasons such as working on the Sabbath, being gay, cursing your parents, or not being a virgin on your wedding night. In addition to these crazy and immoral laws, there are plenty of examples of God’s irrationality by his direct killing of many people for reasons that defy any rational explanation such as killing children who make fun of bald people, and the killing of a man who tried to keep the ark of God from falling during transport. There are also countless examples of mass murders commanded by God, including the murder of women, infants, and children.

    Kill People Who Don’t Listen to Priests
    Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT)

    Kill Witches
    You should not let a sorceress live. (Exodus 22:17 NAB)

    Kill Homosexuals
    “If a man lies with a male as with a women, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives.” (Leviticus 20:13 NAB)

    Kill Fortunetellers
    A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

    Death for Hitting Dad
    Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death. (Exodus 21:15 NAB)

    Death for Cursing Parents
    1) If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness. (Proverbs 20:20 NAB)
    2) All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense. (Leviticus 20:9 NLT)

    Death for Adultery
    If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)

    Death for Fornication
    A priest’s daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death. (Leviticus 21:9 NAB)

    Death to Followers of Other Religions
    Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

    Kill Nonbelievers
    They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

    Kill False Prophets
    If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, “You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord.” When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through. (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)

    Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God
    Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

    Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night
    But if this charge is true (that she wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father’s house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)

    Kill Followers of Other Religions.
    1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)
    2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

    Death for Blasphemy
    One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father got into a fight with one of the Israelite men. During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the LORD’s name. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother’s name was Shelomith. She was the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. They put the man in custody until the LORD’s will in the matter should become clear. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death. Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished. Anyone who blasphemes the LORD’s name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD’s name will surely die. (Leviticus 24:10-16 NLT)

    Kill False Prophets
    1) Suppose there are prophets among you, or those who have dreams about the future, and they promise you signs or miracles, and the predicted signs or miracles take place. If the prophets then say, ‘Come, let us worship the gods of foreign nations,’ do not listen to them. The LORD your God is testing you to see if you love him with all your heart and soul. Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him. The false prophets or dreamers who try to lead you astray must be put to death, for they encourage rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of slavery in the land of Egypt. Since they try to keep you from following the LORD your God, you must execute them to remove the evil from among you. (Deuteronomy 13:1-5 NLT)

    2) But any prophet who claims to give a message from another god or who falsely claims to speak for me must die.’ You may wonder, ‘How will we know whether the prophecy is from the LORD or not?’ If the prophet predicts something in the LORD’s name and it does not happen, the LORD did not give the message. That prophet has spoken on his own and need not be feared. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22 NLT)

    Infidels and Gays Should Die
    So God let them go ahead and do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies. So they worshiped the things God made but not the Creator himself, who is to be praised forever. Amen. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men and, as a result, suffered within themselves the penalty they so richly deserved. When they refused to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their evil minds and let them do things that should never be done. Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, fighting, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They are forever inventing new ways of sinning and are disobedient to their parents. They refuse to understand, break their promises, and are heartless and unforgiving. They are fully aware of God’s death penalty for those who do these things, yet they go right ahead and do them anyway. And, worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too. (Romans 1:24-32 NLT)

    Kill Anyone who Approaches the Tabernacle
    For the LORD had said to Moses, ‘Exempt the tribe of Levi from the census; do not include them when you count the rest of the Israelites. You must put the Levites in charge of the Tabernacle of the Covenant, along with its furnishings and equipment. They must carry the Tabernacle and its equipment as you travel, and they must care for it and camp around it. Whenever the Tabernacle is moved, the Levites will take it down and set it up again. Anyone else who goes too near the Tabernacle will be executed.’ (Numbers 1:48-51 NLT)

    Kill People for Working on the Sabbath
    The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.’ (Exodus 31:12-15 NLT)

    More of Samson’s Murders
    (The Lord saves Sampson from standing trial for 30 murders and arson by allowing him to kill 1000 more men.) When he reached Lehi, and the Philistines came shouting to meet him, the spirit of the Lord came upon him: the ropes around his arms become as flax that is consumed by fire and the bonds melted away from his hands. Near him was the fresh jawbone of an ass; he reached out, grasped it, and with it killed a thousand men. (Judges 15:14-15 NAB)

    Peter Kills Two People
    There was also a man named Ananias who, with his wife, Sapphira, sold some property. He brought part of the money to the apostles, but he claimed it was the full amount. His wife had agreed to this deception. Then Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart? You lied to the Holy Spirit, and you kept some of the money for yourself. The property was yours to sell or not sell, as you wished. And after selling it, the money was yours to give away. How could you do a thing like this? You weren’t lying to us but to God.” As soon as Ananias heard these words, he fell to the floor and died. Everyone who heard about it was terrified. Then some young men wrapped him in a sheet and took him out and buried him. About three hours later his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. Peter asked her, “Was this the price you and your husband received for your land?” “Yes,” she replied, “that was the price.” And Peter said, “How could the two of you even think of doing a thing like this – conspiring together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Just outside that door are the young men who buried your husband, and they will carry you out, too.” Instantly, she fell to the floor and died. When the young men came in and saw that she was dead, they carried her out and buried her beside her husband. Great fear gripped the entire church and all others who heard what had happened. (Acts 5:1-11 NLT)

    Mass Murder
    This is what the Lord of hosts has to say: ‘I will punish what Amalek did to Israel when he barred his way as he was coming up from Egypt. Go, now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has under the ban. Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and asses.’ (1 Samuel 15:2-3 NAB)

    You Have to Kill
    Cursed be he who does the Lords work remissly, cursed he who holds back his sword from blood. (Jeremiah 48:10 NAB)

    The Danites Kill the Next Town
    But the territory of the Danites was too small for them; so the Danites marched up and attacked Leshem, which they captured and put to the sword. Once they had taken possession of Lesham, they renamed the settlement after their ancestor Dan. (Joshua 19:47 NAB)

    God Kills Some More
    Then the LORD said to me, “Even if Moses and Samuel stood before me pleading for these people, I wouldn’t help them. Away with them! Get them out of my sight! And if they say to you, ‘But where can we go?’ tell them, ‘This is what the LORD says: Those who are destined for death, to death; those who are destined for war, to war; those who are destined for famine, to famine; those who are destined for captivity, to captivity.’ “I will send four kinds of destroyers against them,” says the LORD. “I will send the sword to kill, the dogs to drag away, the vultures to devour, and the wild animals to finish up what is left. Because of the wicked things Manasseh son of Hezekiah, king of Judah, did in Jerusalem, I will make my people an object of horror to all the kingdoms of the earth.” (Jeremiah 15:1-4 NLT)

    God Promises More Killing
    I will make Mount Seir utterly desolate, killing off all who try to escape and any who return. I will fill your mountains with the dead. Your hills, your valleys, and your streams will be filled with people slaughtered by the sword. I will make you desolate forever. Your cities will never be rebuilt. Then you will know that I am the LORD. (Ezekiel 35:7-9 NLT)

    The Angel of Death
    My angel will go before you and bring you to the Amorites, Hittites, Perizzites, Canaanites, Hivites, and Jebusites; and I will wipe them out. (Exodus 23:23 NAB)

    Destruction of Ai
    Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid or discouraged. Take the entire army and attack Ai, for I have given to you the king of Ai, his people, his city, and his land. You will destroy them as you destroyed Jericho and its king. But this time you may keep the captured goods and the cattle for yourselves. Set an ambush behind the city.” So Joshua and the army of Israel set out to attack Ai. Joshua chose thirty thousand fighting men and sent them out at night with these orders: “Hide in ambush close behind the city and be ready for action. When our main army attacks, the men of Ai will come out to fight as they did before, and we will run away from them. We will let them chase us until they have all left the city. For they will say, ‘The Israelites are running away from us as they did before.’ Then you will jump up from your ambush and take possession of the city, for the LORD your God will give it to you. Set the city on fire, as the LORD has commanded. You have your orders.” So they left that night and lay in ambush between Bethel and the west side of Ai. But Joshua remained among the people in the camp that night.

    Early the next morning Joshua roused his men and started toward Ai, accompanied by the leaders of Israel. They camped on the north side of Ai, with a valley between them and the city. That night Joshua sent five thousand men to lie in ambush between Bethel and Ai, on the west side of the city. So they stationed the main army north of the city and the ambush west of the city. Joshua himself spent that night in the valley. When the king of Ai saw the Israelites across the valley, he and all his army hurriedly went out early the next morning and attacked the Israelites at a place overlooking the Jordan Valley. But he didn’t realize there was an ambush behind the city. Joshua and the Israelite army fled toward the wilderness as though they were badly beaten, and all the men in the city were called out to chase after them. In this way, they were lured away from the city. There was not a man left in Ai or Bethel who did not chase after the Israelites, and the city was left wide open.

    Then the LORD said to Joshua, “Point your spear toward Ai, for I will give you the city.” Joshua did as he was commanded. As soon as Joshua gave the signal, the men in ambush jumped up and poured into the city. They quickly captured it and set it on fire. When the men of Ai looked behind them, smoke from the city was filling the sky, and they had nowhere to go. For the Israelites who had fled in the direction of the wilderness now turned on their pursuers. When Joshua and the other Israelites saw that the ambush had succeeded and that smoke was rising from the city, they turned and attacked the men of Ai. Then the Israelites who were inside the city came out and started killing the enemy from the rear. So the men of Ai were caught in a trap, and all of them died. Not a single person survived or escaped. Only the king of Ai was taken alive and brought to Joshua.

    When the Israelite army finished killing all the men outside the city, they went back and finished off everyone inside. So the entire population of Ai was wiped out that day – twelve thousand in all. For Joshua kept holding out his spear until everyone who had lived in Ai was completely destroyed. Only the cattle and the treasures of the city were not destroyed, for the Israelites kept these for themselves, as the LORD had commanded Joshua. So Ai became a permanent mound of ruins, desolate to this very day. Joshua hung the king of Ai on a tree and left him there until evening. At sunset the Israelites took down the body and threw it in front of the city gate. They piled a great heap of stones over him that can still be seen today. (Joshua 8:1-29 NLT)

    I am a Christian, but I think journalists have to be responsible and objective in their reporting. The first paragraph of this report or article states that the victim was killed by ‘unknown assailants’, that expressly contradicts the title that states that she was ‘killed in northern Nigeria by Muslims’. I think this kind of reporting is unfair, unbalanced, and very bias. I will be the first to mention anywhere that Islam has its problems, but to accuse the Muslim community based on hearsay of the victim’s husband is totally unacceptable.

    From the little I have been able to know about the two major religions in the land (Nigeria) Christianity and Islam, the founder and leaders of one encouraged fighting and killing while the founder and leaders of the other brought life, salvation and encouraged forgiveness. Matt. 1:21; Lk. 19:10; 1 Tim. 1:15; John 10:10; Matt. 6:14-15; Lk. 6:37. The doctrines and teachings of these founders and leaders is clearly seen in the lives of their followers. Any where there is killing, there will be hatred and vice-vasa. If some believe others who are not of their religious belief should be hated and killed, which have been the practice and the root problems in this nation and the world, where is the Pease and love we profess of ‘our religion’? But this is sure and certain; no murderer will go unpunished either now or later; every innocent blood concealed either by an individual or any government will continue to have terrible effect on that individual or the citizenry under such government. God is not man and no man can fight Him or fight for Him. I counsel the Authorities to bring about necessary justice.

    I just saw the gory and graphical picture, i could barely stand the sight, this is incredible how human beings can be so cruel to fellow human beings like them selves, they will not go unpunished both here and in the here after, they will not escaped, this innocent woman’s blood will hunt them, the police must do every thing they can to bring the perpetrators of this dastard and barbaric act to book, it is said that “those who kill with the sword, will die by the sword” ” he who sheds man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed” i condole with the husband and children of the deceased, she is resting in the bosom of the lord, that is the only consolation.

    Then what must be done? I want to see a Muslim stand up and protest this hacking down. Just a month ago, a Deeper life woman was killed before her her pastor husband in an open market by Muslims that gathered to shout blashphemy in a market Square in the same North.

    The Muslims hands are not clean. They are not moved by the blood of the innocent. These are people who will go to the south and build Mosques in Igbo Land, blast loud speaker morning & evening and live freely among tolerant Christians. What Country are living in. You Muslims are insensitive.
