Uwaila Omozuwa: Obaseki Reacts To Arrest Of Suspects By Police

The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, has commended the police for arresting suspects involved in the rape and killing of Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, a 100 level student of University of Benin.

The governor expressed pleasure at the level of investigation on the late Microbiology undergraduate’s murder.

“I applaud the Edo State Police Command under the leadership of Mr. Johnson Kokumo, for their steadfastness in ensuring that they trailed those suspected to have murdered Miss Uwa Omozuwa,” Obaseki stated.

He expressed regret that the young lady’s life was cut short as she sought the serenity of a church to study in preparation for her examination.

“While this is the first step in unraveling and bringing those culpable in the dastardly act to justice, we urge the police not to rest on their oars but to ensure diligent and thorough investigation.

“We are also confident that the just resolution of the matter would benefit from the Violence Against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) Law that is in force in the state.”

Obaseki further said that the police command under the current commissioner has shown strength in fighting violent crimes in Edo.

“The commissioner, who has proven his mettle over time, also showed operational dexterity during the investigation of the kidnappers at Ogba zoo, in which some police officers were killed in cold blood.”

The governor noted that he’s hopeful of full prosecution of everyone indicted in the student’s murder.
