The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the New Jersey Police have embarked on a joint operation to unravel the mystery surrounding the death of a Republican Councilwoman, Eunice Dwumfour.
The New York Post reported that Dwumfour was shot dead in front of her home in New Jersey, United States of America, on Wednesday, February 1, 2023.
She was said to be the wife of a Nigeria-based pastor, Eze Kings.
Dwumfour, 30, was reportedly hit by a yet-to-be-identified assailant while driving around her home.
The white Nissan SUV she drove crashed into two parked cars before coming to a stop.
A male witness, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said her car was hit with about 12 shots while travelling down Check Avenue toward Samuel Circle around 7.15pm.
The vehicle eventually came to a stop after crashing into two parked cars, including the witness’ black Lexus GS350.
Chilling Snapchat footage of the aftermath of the incident showed Dwumfour’s body in the car while first responders surrounded the scene.
“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’s door. Some other neighbours said they saw someone running away with a mask on.”
Meanwhile, CBS News reported that the FBI on Friday joined the police in search of those responsible for Dwumfour’s death.
Investigators from the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office reportedly combed the woods behind the La Mur complex for clues.
NY Post also reported that 20 Sayreville police officers were spotted combing the sides of a Garden State Parkway exit ramp headed toward the Jon Bon Jovi Service area on Thursday afternoon.
Shortly after, investigators at the murder scene told reporters that Dwumfour was caught on video speaking to the shooter just moments before her death.
Dwumfour was a Certified Business Analyst and Scrum Professional for Fire Congress Fellowship Inc.
She also served as a Director of Churches for the Nigerian-based Champions Royal Assembly, according to her LinkedIn page, which touted her “bubbly personality, and strong work ethics.”
