Murder in church: We’ll get UNIBEN student’s killers –IG



Inspector General of Police (IG), Mohammed Adamu, has vowed to bring suspected killers of a 100-level student of the Department of Microbiology, University of Benin (UNIBEN), Miss Vera Omozuwa, to justice.

The student was reportedly molested, after her attackers had smashed her head with a fire extinguisher.

The incident, which was said to have occurred at a church in Benin, the Edo State capital last week, has continued to cause outrage, with Governor Godwin Obaseki ordering a full-scale investigation into the killing.

In an effort to track the fleeing killers, the IG said additional investigation aids and forensic support had been deployed to boost measures by the Edo State Police Command.

Adamu’s assurance was conveyed in a statement yesterday by the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), DCP Frank Mba.

He said: “As part of deliberate and concerted efforts by the Nigeria Police High Command to unravel the circumstances surrounding the brutal attack and unfortunate death of Miss Vera Uwaila Omosuwa in Benin, Edo State on 28th and 30th May, 2020 respectively, the Inspector General of Police has deployed additional investigation aids and forensic support to Edo State Police Command to complement and expedite actions in the ongoing investigations into the unfortunate incident.

“The IGP, while condemning the attack, commiserates with the family, friends and colleagues of the deceased. He calls for calm and assures that the Force will surely bring the perpetrators of the callous act to book in the shortest possible time.”
