General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has reacted to the rape and murder of a University of Benin – UNIBEN student, Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, in one of the branches of his church.
Omozuwa’s attackers reportedly smashed her head with a fire extinguisher and left her unconscious around the Ikpoba Hill area of Benin City, the state capital, about four days ago.
Despite being rushed to the intensive care unit of a hospital, Omozuwa couldn’t make it as she succumbed to the injuries sustained during the savage attack.
Friends and all those who knew Omozuwa, the UNIBEN student, closely have been paying tribute and calling for the perpetrators of the crime to be brought to justice.
Adeboye, in a statement on his official Instagram page, condemned the tragedy saying that Redeemed Christian Church of God is working with relevant authorities to bring the perpetrators to book.
“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.”
