Many guests arrived at the church on Saturday, unaware of the tragic turn of events. They were met with an empty church instead of a joyous celebration.

Rebecca, a 28-year-old graduate of Federal University of Technology (FUT) in Minna, Niger state, had served in Lagos before securing a job there. She was described as a gentle and devoted woman of God.
