The brutal rape and murder of 22-year-old UNIBEN student, Uwa Omozuwa, has led to massive outrage on social media.
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 reports gathered, the deceased had gone to the church to read as she prepared for the possible school resumption after months of staying at home as a result of the lockdown order.
The perpetrators were said to have attacked her at the RCCG Ohovbe road branch, raped and smashed her head with a fire extinguisher, leaving her for dead.
Uwa’s assault in Benin has been condemned by Nigerians all over the country. With the hashtag, #JusticeForUwa, Nigerians are calling for Uwa’s attackers, who are still walking free, to be found and prosecuted.
