How The Police Caught Uwa's Assailants!


                Faces of the suspects ( sitting on the ground)

Remember the story of the gory rape and murder of the 100 level student
 of the University of Benin, (UNIBEN), Vera Uwaila Omonzua in a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God?


Finally, the law has caught up with those in connection with the dastardly act!

The Edo state police command have arrested six suspects and paraded for public glare.


The innocent 22-year-old Vera  was attacked with a fire extinguisher, raped and killed  when she went to read at Edo Province 10 Ikpoba Hill, Benin, on the 27th of May,2020.

                                  The fire extinguisher used for evil 

Several investigations had followed to catch up with the culprits ever since.

Prayers by pained Nigerians never went unanswered …

It wasn’t only the fact that she was raped and murdered that triggered a stir but the evil perpetrated in the house of God. Multiple evil I will call it.

The suspects paraded are; Nelson Ogbebor, Akato Valentine, Mrs Tina Samuel, Mrs Mary Ade, Nosa Osabohien and Collins Ulegbe.


After thorough investigation,  the police got their breakthrough after tracing the phone of the deceased to one of the suspects, Nosa Osabohien.


Nosa who claimed to be a phone repairer said he bought late Vera's phone from the main suspect, Collins Uyegbulen.


 He, however, led the police to arrest Collins who confessed to having directly gotten involved in the murder.


Collins said that he used the fire extinguisher in the church to hit late Vera after the other suspects took turns to rape her.


Names of other members of his gang are; Akato Valentine and Collins Ogbebor. 


During the investigation, he  told the police that one Mary Ade gave them 1million naira  to kill the suspect and then use a handkerchief she gave them to clean the blood from the private part of the innocent deceased girl. 

Who knows what such a dirty act is for?

Tina Samuel happens to be another suspect who was arrested for allegedly hindering the police from arresting her son, Lucky, who happens to be one of the suspects.


The Commissioner of Police for the state, Johnson Kokumo, who paraded the suspects, said a post-mortem conducted on late Uwaila, showed that she was actually raped.

Thumbs up to the Nigeria Police.

Many organizations had risen to advocate against the rape in the chapel: # justice-for-uwa. Many other rapes that took place during the lockdown were neither overlooked. Rape cases did rise during the onset of COVID-19 lockdown period.

Truly the wicked will never go unpunished! These ones will definitely dance to the tune of the law!

Rest now, dear Omonzuwa! Your spilt blood in the chapel has haunted them and with God's backing, they have been caught! 

What punishment do these murderers deserve?
