Pastor husband of murdered councilwomen, Eunice Dwumfour makes a post in mark what would have been her birthday

The husband of a Republican councilwoman in New Jersey, who was gunned down outside her home, wrote a birthday post for her a month ahead of time.

Eze Kings honored his wife Eunice Dwumfour’s birthday one month and a day ahead of her 31st birthday after she was found dead in her car on Wednesday evening around 7.22pm.

On Thursday, he wrote: ‘4th March is your birthday happy glorious birthday in addy my love.’

He posted professional photos where Dwumfour’s wedding ring was visible throughout many of the images. The pair married in November.

Investigators told ABC 7 that they are digging into her husband’s ties to a church in Nigeria, among other things. The mother also reportedly spoke with her shooter moments before she was shot dead, but no suspects have yet been named.

The Republican mother-of-one was found with multiple gunshot wounds and pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses claim that the suspected gunman was spotted racing away from the Camelot at La Mer apartment complex, and a 911 call was placed at 7.22pm.

Authorities say that the councilwoman, who worked for a Nigerian-based church group, was the intended target – but have not given a motive.

Friends of the politician said the killing could have been racially motivated as the couple lived in ‘clan land.’

‘We all suggested that she doesn’t move down to that part of Jersey — we call that “clan land,” the friend, who asked to remain anonymous, told the Post. ‘That was a hit. That was an assassination.’

Another friend, Amos Martey, 52, of Ghana, told the Post: ‘I believe color played a role. I believe because she’s a minority. It might be related to her job … I might be wrong, but that’s how I feel. It breaks my heart.’

Her white SUV was seen being removed from the scene by authorities in the early hours of the morning.

Family members told USA Today that she lived at the property with her 12-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

Her sister Priscilla said: ‘She was always happy, very humble and had respect.’

Detective Juan Rodriguez and Pastor Doctor Nelia Rodriguez posted online saying: ‘I just saw her this morning at the store.

‘I remember saying to her I’ll see you at the HRC meeting tomorrow not knowing tonight was going to be the end of her life.
