The wife of a Nigerian pastor, Eze Kings, who lived in the USA has died after being shot twelve times whilst behind the wheel of her car.

Eze Kings’ wife, Eunice Dwumfour, was a New Jersey councilwoman prior to her demise, the New York Post reports.

Dwumfour was gunned down outside her home on Wednesday, February 1st 2023. She was hit 12 times and died from multiple gunshot wounds. She also crashed her white Nissan SUV after being shot near the Camelot at La Mer apartment complex in Sayreville.

New York Post wrote: “Dwumfour, 30, was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds after her white Nissan SUV crashed near the Camelot at La Mer apartment complex in Sayreville, the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office confirmed Thursday morning.

“A male witness, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Post Thursday that Dwumfour’s car was hit with about 12 shots while traveling down Check Avenue toward Samuel Circle around 7:15 p.m. 

“The vehicle eventually came to a stop after crashing into two parked cars, including the witness’s black Lexus GS350.”

“It took a second before I realized there was a dead body behind the wheel,” the witness explained.

“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.”

 Investigators at the murder scene told The Post that Dwumfour was caught on video speaking to the shooter – man wearing a hoodie – just moments before her death.

Eunice Dwumfour was a Republican councilwoman who served the Borough of Sayreville since November 2021, when she ousted the sitting Democrat in a surprising election win.

She was shot to death in February 2023 in front of her home. Eunice was spotted speaking to the gunman just before he shot her 12 times whilst behind the wheel of her car.

The FBI are assisting local police in the search for the murderer.

Sayreville’s Mayor, Victoria Kilpatrick, mourned her loss and issued a statement on Thursday, February 2, 2023, stating: “Eunice was a dedicated member of our borough council who was truly committed to serve our residents. The fact she was taken from us by this despicable criminal act makes this incident all the more horrifying.”

While no suspect has been caught as of yet, the investigation is still ongoing. The authorities have recently reached out to Dwumfour’s husband’s church in an effort to understand the councilperson’s involvement with it.

In addition, they have reportedly been investigating into all her relationships, both personal as well as professional. Aside from that, authorities are also questioning whether the crime was racially motivated.

Dwumfour’s father, Prince, remarked that the family is fully cooperating with law enforcement officials but refused to divulge anything about the investigation.

The Republican councilwoman was the oldest of five children in a Ghanaian family. She leaves behind an 11-year-old daughter. 

Dwumfour, who relatives said married her husband in November, was elected to her first term in Nov. 2021. She had reportedly lived in the Middlesex County area for about five years.
