President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday condoled with the family of the late Uwaila Omozuwa, a 100-level student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) who was recently raped and killed in a church in Benin City, Edo State.
The President directed the police to expedite investigation into the incident and bring the culprits to book.
The president tweeted: “I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Uwaila Omozuwa.
“I expect the Nigeria Police Force to speedily and diligently investigate this case and ensure that all the culprits responsible for this barbaric act are brought to justice.”
Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police (IG) Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the transfer of investigation into the death of Vera Omozuwa, to the Force Headquarters, Abuja.
Police appealed for useful information that would aid investigations into ongoing sexual assaults and domestic/gender-based violence across the country.
IG advised parents and guardians to pay closer attention to their children and wards.
