The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Sunday said his church was cooperating with the police in its investigation into the rape and murder of 22-year-old University of Benin undergraduate, Uwaila Omonzuwa, by unknown persons.
She was attacked inside the Ikpoba Hill parish of the church on Wednesday and was rushed to a private hospital which in turn referred her to University of Benin Teaching Hospital where she died the following day.
In tweets, 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 incident. . #justiceforuwa”
