#JusticeforUwa: UNIBEN Reacts to Rape, Murder of Undergraduate Student in Church
The Management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), has reacted to the news of the rape and killing of one of its students, Miss Vera Omozuwa.
The victim was a 100 level Microbiology student of the institution before her travail.
Vice Chancellor of UNIBEN, Prof. Lilian Salami, in a statement through the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Dr Benedicta Ehanire, revealed the news as shocking.
In the statement made available to newsmen on Sunday in Benin, the VC said the actions were condemn-able and should not be condoned by any society.
She said the current COVID-19 pandemic was already hard on everyone and that compounding it with inflicting additional pain on any family was a wicked act.
While commiserating with the bereaved family on the loss of their daughter, Salami prayed God to grant her soul peaceful rest.
The vice chancellor urged students of the institution and indeed all young people to be wary of the company they kept and the places they visited.
