The management of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has reacted to the alleged r.a.p.e of one of its students, Vera Uwaila Omozuwa.
It was learned that Uwaila, who was a 100-level Microbiology student of UNIBEN, was r.a.p.e.d and killed by some unknown person while reading in a Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, in Benin City.
The Vice-Chancellor of UNIBEN, Lilian Salami, in a statement through the institution’s Public Relations Officer, Benedicta Ehanire, expressed shock over the news.
He described the action as condemnable, adding that inflicting such pain on any family in this era of COVID-19 pandemic is a wicked act.
While commiserating with the bereaved family on the loss of their daughter, Mrs Salami prayed God to grant her soul peaceful rest.
The Vice-Chancellor advised students of the institution to be careful of the company they keep and the places they visited.
He added that a delegation had been sent by the university’s management to commiserate with the bereaved family.
