UNIBEN Student Raped Inside Church, Dies
Miss Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, a 100 level student of the University of Benin, from the department of Microbiology, faculty of Life Sciences, have been confirmed dead after injuries sustained from rape.
The 22-year-old victim was said to have been raped on Friday 29th May near Ikpoba Hill in Benin City, at her church, the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), according to report.
The deceased had gone to the church to read as usual in preparation for the lifting of the coronavirus-imposed shutdown of schools.
The perpetrators were said to have attacked her at the RCCG Ohovbe road branch, raped and smashed her head with a fire extinguisher.
She was later rushed to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH) where she battled for her dear life at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
She, however, gave up the ghost Saturday midnight, May 30, following excess loss of blood and deep cuts sustained from the attack.
….. May her soul rest in peace
