Forty-two-year old Mrs Elisha was hacked to death by
hoodlums on June 9 at Gbazango-West area of Kubwa, a
satellite town in the Federal Capital Territory while
preaching early in the morning.
She was an assistant pastor at the RCCG, Divine Touch
parish, Old NEPA road, Phase 4, Kubwa, before she was
slashed in the neck and stabbed in the stomach by suspected
religious fanatics.
Adeboye, fondly called Daddy G.O by his admirers, said
contrary to calls by eminent Nigerians that he should seek
vengeance against killers of the evangelist, he would not do
He said such move would be counterproductive just as it
would be contrary to what the deceased wanted and stood
for when she was martyred.
According to the revered man of God, if Dcns Elisha was
actually preaching to win souls for Jesus Christ, it would be
unscriptural and anti-Christ to seek to kill the same souls she
sought to save.
Adeboye made the declaration on the occasion of the
second day of the ongoing Ministers Conference at the
Redemption Camp, Kilometer 46, Lagos – Ibadan
Expressway on Friday morning ahead the 64 annual
convention starting August 1.
“I’m not looking for vengeance. I won’t listen to people
asking me to seek vengeance.
“I won’t pursue the case. That’ll be contrary to what she
“She wanted them saved, not killed.
“What will their killing do for me?,” the 74-year-old cleric
Teaching on the topic, “Importance of Mercy,” Adeboye
said since every Christian did not know when they would
die, the time to truly seek God was now.
Making an example out of the slain Mrs Elisha whom he
said was not aware she won’t return home alive on that
fateful day, the Ifewara-born cleric warned that the end of
the age was imminent, hence the prevalence of vices all
over the world.
He said the murdered evangelist finished well and was, no
doubt, sitting at the right hand of her Saviour for whom she
paid the supreme price.
“Recently, some hoodlums went to murder my daughter in
“She was doing her morning cry that morning as she
usually did, armed with a megaphone and her Bible.
“An Imam was said to have sent some hoodlums to drive
her away, but they did something else.
“She didn’t know she won’t return home that day.
“She finished well. She finished strong
“What a beautiful way to go. She’s gone to be with the
Lord,” he stated glowingly.
The man of God said that his joy was predicated on the fact
that another soul was waiting for him in Heaven.
“My joy is that she finished well and I have additional soul
waiting to welcome me in Heaven when it is my time,”
Adeboye noted.
It will be recalled that husband of the slain evangelist,
Pastor Elisha had, earlier, expressed misgivings in killing
whoever was caught in connection with the murder, saying
he would rather they gave their lives to Jesus Christ.
Describing his wife as a martyr, he said: “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 slain lady evangelist, who left behind his husband,
aged father, mother and seven children, was buried last
Saturday in Abuja.
