Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has reacted to the alleged rape and murder of Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, a 100-level Microbiology student of University of Benin (UNIBEN).
Uwaila, who was a 100-level Microbiology student of UNIBEN, was allegedly raped and killed by some unknown men when she went to read in her local church which is a Redeemed Christian Church of God parish in Benin City.
Her death has since stirred reactions from Nigerians on social media seeking justice for her.
While reacting to the ugly incident, Adeboye on his verified Twitter page commiserated with the family of Uwa even as he called for calm.
He condemned the act, adding that the church has began investigation into the case and would cooperate with the Nigeria Police to get justice for the victim.
He also announced a prayer campaign to ensure that those behind her death face justice.
His tweet read: “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,”.
