The sister of Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, the University Of Benin student who was raped and murdered in a church in Ovie Quarters, Ikpoba Hill has revealed that the police of demanded for “mobility fee” before they will take up her late sister’s case.
The deceased’s sister made the revelation after leading some youths in a protest to the Edo state police headquarters where they were received by Edo State Deputy Commissioner of Police in-charge of operations, Ayoola Ajala.
Uwaila’s sister stated that she is disappointed in the Nigerian Police for allegedly refusing to follow to take up the case when it was first reported. She said that her father went to the police station in the community several times, but was told that they needed “mobilization money” for the case.
The rape victim’s sister went on to say that the police officers also asked her father “if her daughter is the first person to be raped”. She affirmed that the rape incident occurred on Wednesday May 27, while her sister died on Saturday May 30.
One of the protesters also called for the interrogation of the Pastor of the church where the UNIBEN undergraduate was raped.
