A 47-year-old woman, Rachel Johnson, has been reportedly stabbed to death while separating a fight between Church members at Abaranje, Ikotun area of Lagos state.
This was disclosed by a senior Police officer who said that at about 3 a.m. on Saturday, the deceased’s husband, Okerube Johnson, came to Ikotun Police Station to report that his wife, Rachel, had been stabbed dead.
He said she had gone to a crusade, but that some Church members were fighting and Rachel intervened in an attempt to stop the fight.
Mr Johnson, according to the Police, “told us that while she was separating the fighters, one of them stabbed her in the neck with a sharp object. And she started bleeding.
“She was immediately rushed to Igando General Hospital. But all efforts to revive her proved abortive as she bled to death.
“Her body was deposited at Mainland General Hospital Mortuary, Yaba, for autopsy.”
The Lagos State Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, was contacted for an update.
He said: “The suspect is still on the run. We are yet to make any arrest at the moment but efforts are being made to arrest the fleeing perpetrator.”
