(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Remember her? Uwaila Vera Omozuwa, a 100-Level Microbiology stauden of the University of Benin who was allegedly gang raped and murdered in the church in Benin back in May.
Nigerians have commended the Nigerian police force for unraveling the mystery behind her death.
Police paraded the suspected killers as Nelson Ogbebor, Akato Valentine, Mrs Tina Samuel, Mrs Mary Ade, Nosa Osabohien and Collins Ulegbe.
The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Johnson Kokumo, said:
“The matter is of great concern to the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu, who sent homicide experts to work with our policemen in Benin.
“What we are seeing today is a result of the efforts of the police to get at the root of the crime, and today, I announce to you that the perpetrators have been arrested.”
In a video where the suspects confessed that the landlady of the deceased paid them one million naira to kill Uwa as she was doing better than her child.
This development has elicited reactions from Nigerians as they commended the professionalism of the Nigerian police and enjoining the police to make sure that the suspects are brought to justice.
