The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has reacted to the rape and murder of a 100-level student of the University of Benin, Uwaila Omozuwa.
This news medium reports that Omozuwa was raped and murdered by hoodlums inside the auditorium of RCCG, Miracle Sanctuary Mega Parish, Edo Province 10, in Benin City on May 27.
It was learned the men made their way into the church and struck her in the head with a fire extinguisher, raped her, and left her dead. This has however caused a stir on social media as many Nigerians demand justice for the deceased using the hashtag #JusticeforUwa on Sunday.
But in a statement on Sunday night via his verified Facebook page, Adeboye has vowed to bring the abusers and killers of the student to book.
The cleric noted that he will work with relevant security authorities in order to arrest the culprits, saying that he will not relent until justice is served.
Adeboye also condoled with the family of the deceased, praying that God will give them the fortitude to bear the loss.
Adeboye said, “All I can do at this time is to pray for the family of Omozuwa and do everything possible working with relevant authorities to bring the perpetrators to book.
“I and members of my Family condemn this act strongly and urge everyone to stay calm as we are already looking into the matter and cooperating with the police to establish the facts of the shocking situation.”
