The remains of 100 level University of Benin (UNIBEN) student, Uwaila Omozuwa, who was gang-raped in a Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) have been laid to rest.

Omozuwa’s remains were later interred at the Third Cemetery, Benin.

The cleric-in-charge of RCCG Peace Sanctuary Benin, Pastor Dele Balogun, described her as a very devout Christian, who did not joke with the things of God.

He spoke during a service of songs in honour of the deceased.

Balogun also noted that although the incident was painful, the murdered undergraduate was committed to God’s work to the end.

Members of Omozuwa’s family, in a statement, described her as a very hardworking and committed daughter, who would be greatly missed.

They said she lived her life as a dedicated Christian, who took the things of God very seriously.

The undergraduate was reading books in the church when she was gang-raped and murdered on May 27.

Edo Police Command has paraded six suspects: Nelson Ogbebor, Akato Valentine, Mrs. Tina Samuel, Mrs. Mary Ade, Nosa Osabohien and Collins Ulegbe in connection with the incident.
