Rashid Ali Bynum Wiki – Rashid Ali BynumBiography

Police have arrested a 28-year-old man in connection with the murder of a New Jersey councilwoman who was shot 14 times in the car outside her home in February. Rashid Ali Bynum, of Portsmouth, Virginia, was arrested Tuesday and charged with first-degree murder, second-degree unlawful possession of a firearm and second-degree possession of a firearm for an unlawful purpose.

Eunice Dwumfour, 30, was brutally shot to death after dropping someone off in Sayreville on February 1 with friends, calling it a “targeted and personal attack.” She crashed into her SUV and fell over the wheel. From Bynum’s phone records, law enforcement discovered links between him and the Nigeria-based Newark Chapter of Champions Royal Assembly Church, where Dwumfour is said to have worked with Bynum before her death.

Although Dwumfour was a native of Newark and has family there, she lived in Sayreville as a single mother. She had recently married a pastor who lives in Nigeria. Witnesses at the time of the fatal shooting said they saw a white vehicle nearby. Law enforcement said they identified Bynum’s phone and car, a white Hyundai Elantra, using cell tower extraction records, the New Jersey Globe reported.


Bynum met Dwumfour in 2017 when she was living at Skytop Gardens Apartments in Parlin. Phone records also link Bynum to the Church of the Royal Assembly of Champions, the Parlin-based Congressional Fraternity of Firefighters and mutual contacts with Dwumfour.

Rashid Ali Bynum arrested for killing Eunice Dwumfour

According to the outlet, records show Bynum also has outstanding warrants for his failure to appear for four citations related to a June 2019 traffic stop in Cranbury. He had been pulled over for making an illegal U-turn and later received a citation for driving on a suspended license and other violations.


The FBI has been involved in the investigation along with Sayreville police and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, but they have released few details about the investigation. Bynum is awaiting extradition to New Jersey, where he will later be held at the Middlesex County Adult Correctional Facility pending a pretrial detention hearing in Superior Court.

In the early stages of the investigation, some neighbors told police they had seen Dwumfour talking to a man outside his car on security footage just before the shooting. Dwumfour married Pastor Eze Kings, who lives in Nigeria, just before Thanksgiving, living in the apartment with her 12-year-old daughter from a previous relationship.

Wedding day pictures of her show how happy the mother-of-one was, smiling alongside her new husband. Kings posted on Facebook about the loss of his girlfriend after the shooting, wishing her a happy birthday in advance. ‘March 4th is your birthday happy glorious birthday to addy my love’. Addy’ is Nigerian slang for the word breakthrough.


He accompanied the post with several photos from the couple’s wedding, which Dwumfour had celebrated in an Instagram post on December 7. Alexandra Bryan, a neighbor who lived near where the shooting occurred, told the New York Times that she heard what she initially thought were fireworks twice just after 7 p.m.

‘Twice, one after the other,’ she said. Like five seconds apart. “It’s a really nice complex,” added Bryan. Children can play without their parents. He is always calm. That’s why it’s a shock to everyone. Dwumfour was found inside her white Nissan SUV with multiple gunshot wounds in Samuel Circle just before 7:30 p.m.

Friend and pastor Nelia Rodríguez told The Ingraham Angle that she believes the incident was a “personal attack.” She added: ‘We think [it was] very personal because he was shot seven times in the face and another seven shots hit everywhere. “So for someone to get that close to someone and shoot them that many times, it has to be personal.”


Dwumfour ousted the incumbent Democrat in the Sayreville district in November 2021, in a stunning election victory, and did not run for re-election until 2024. A friend of hers told that she and her family had just returned from Nigeria on a church trip, describing her as “bubbly and nice”.

Family members told USA Today that she lived on 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.’ The councilwoman’s friends previously paid tribute to her as an ‘incredible friend’ who ‘loved God’.

Detective Juan Rodríguez and Pastor Dr. Nelia Rodríguez posted online saying: ‘I just saw her this morning at the store. “I remember telling her I’ll see you at the HRC meeting tomorrow not knowing that tonight was going to be the end of her life. ‘I can not stop crying. She was 30 years old, young and full of life. We will miss you, my dear and precious friend. Dwumfour was a Certified Business Analyst and Scrum Professional for Fire Congress Fellowship Inc. and a part-time EMT.


She graduated from William Paterson University and served as Director of Churches for the Nigeria-based Royal Assembly of Champions. In a statement, Sayreville Mayor Victoria Kilpatrick said: “The community is shocked and saddened by the loss of Eunice Dwumfour, who was a dedicated member of our City Council who was truly committed to serving all of our residents.

“The fact that she was taken from us for a despicable criminal act makes this incident even more horrifying.” Sayreville Republican Chairwoman Karen Bailey Bebert added: “We remember Eunice for how she lived, not how she died. “She was the epitome of Sayreville, living the American Dream, overcoming challenges with determination and a smile.

‘And she always giving time and love to others. She embodied Sayreville and will be terribly missed by all who were lucky enough to know her.” New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy added that he was “stunned” by her murder, calling it an “act of gun violence.” He told WNYC that “little” was known about the motivation for the incident that “does not appear to be related to her potion as an elected councilor in Sayreville.”Read More……
