A 47-year-old woman identified as Rachel Johnson has died after she was stabbed to death while separating a fight between Church members at Abaranje, Ikotun area of Lagos State.

The Lagos State Police Command said the deceased’s husband, Okerube Johnson, came to Ikotun Police Station on Saturday around 3am to report that his wife, Rachel, was stabbed.

Okerube said she had gone to a crusade, but that some Church members were fighting and Rachel intervened in an attempt to stop the fight.

The Police said, “He 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.
