Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has reacted to the death of a first-year Microbiology student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Uwaila Omozuwa who died after being raped and beaten inside her local church.
The 22-year-old student who goes to read every day at The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Edo Province 10, Ikpoba Hill, Benin, was attacked with a fire extinguisher by unknown men on Wednesday, May 27.
While responding to the painful death of the girl on his Twitter handle, Adeboye wrote: ” 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.”
A family source said Uwaila died on Saturday midnight at the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) where she was rushed to after the attack. And it’s said that police are now investigating the incident to find the perpetrators.
