Eunice Dwumfour, the wife of a Nigerian pastor named Eze Kings, was shot dead in front of her home in New Jersey, United States of America.
The Foundation for Investigative Journalism has confirmed that the deceased, a Republican councilwoman, was the Nigerian clergyman’s wife.
According to the York Post, Dwumfour, 30, was shot about 12 times by an unidentified assailant on the evening of Wednesday, February 1, 2023.
She was attacked while driving around her neighborhood in her white Nissan SUV, which rammed into two stationary cars before coming to a halt.
According to a male witness who spoke on the condition of anonymity to the NY Post on Thursday, Dwumfour’s car was hit with about 12 shots while travelling down Check Avenue toward Samuel Circle around 7:15 p.m.
The vehicle eventually stopped after crashing into the two parked cars, one of which is a black Lexus GS350 belonging to the witness.
The witness said: “It took a second before I realised there was a dead body behind the wheel.
“She was slumped over the wheel with a black hoodie with brown fur covering her head, her hands were down by her side. There was one bullet hole in the passenger door and a bunch of bullet holes in the driver door. Some other neighbors said they saw someone running away with a mask on.”
Meanwhile, RLS Media also reported that some locals spotted the gunman racing off to the Garden State Parkway, which edges the complex.
It was gathered that 20 Sayreville police officers were spotted on Thursday afternoon combing the sides of a Garden State Parkway exit ramp headed toward the Jon Bon Jovi Service Area.
