The federal house of representatives on Tuesday called on Ibrahim Idris, acting inspector-general of police,  to conduct an in depth investigation into the murder of Eunice Olawale who was hacked to death in Kubwa, federal capital territory over the weekend.

The house also urged the FCT administration to remove shanties from the locations where miscreants attack unsuspecting citizens.

This resolution of the house was sequel to a motion on matters of public importance sponsored by Gabriel Kolawole, who stated that there is the need to protect citizens of the nation’s capital.

“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,” Kolawole told the house.

“She was allegedly murdered by miscreants who were said to be annoyed by her early morning preaching in the area.”

He said incident has caused ethnic tension in the FCT due to accusations and counter-accusations about the identity of the murderers.

The lawmaker stated that the house needs to be proactive to prevent further breakdown of law and order and loss of lives across the country.

Supporting the motion, Ayorinde Olabode expressed sadness at the incident, and emphasised the need to punish the perpetrators.

The House adopted the motion after it was put to a voice vote by Speaker Yakubu Dogara.
