A 47-year-old woman identified as Rachel Johnson has been stabbed to death while separating a fight between church members at Abaranje, in the Ikotun area of the Lagos State.
A senior police officer told Vanguard that at about 3 a.m. on Saturday, the husband of the deceased woman, Okerube Johnson, went to Ikotun Police Station to report that his wife had been stabbed to death.
According to Okerube, Rachel went to a crusade and tried to break up a fight between church members but was stabbed in the process.
The police officer quoted Okerube as saying that “while she (Rachel) was separating the fighters, one of them stabbed her in the neck with a sharp object. And she started bleeding”.
He said she was taken to Igando General Hospital but bled to death.
“Her body was deposited at Mainland General Hospital Mortuary, Yaba, for autopsy,” the source told Vanguard.
