There should be a penalty for rape, the rapist shouldn’t just be arrested they should be traumatized like their victims
Who is Uwa? Vera Uwaila Omozuwa – Uwa – was an 100 level student of Microbiology at the University of Benin. A few days ago, she was reading inside a Redeemed Christian Church Of God parish in Edo state — not quite far from her home — when she was raped and killed.
According to reports, her attackers smashed her head with a fire extinguisher and left her unconscious around the Ikpoba Hill area of Benin City. Although she was rushed to the intensive care unit of a hospital, Uwa did not survive.
News of her death has generated outrage, with a lot of people calling for justice for Uwa:
Uwa was reported to have visited the RCCG, Edo Province 10, Ikpoba Hill, Benin to read on Wednesday, May 27, 2020.
She was said to be in the church auditorium when some men attacked her, raped her, hit her head with a fire extinguisher cylinder and left her for dead.
According to The Punch, a security official at the church found her in a pool of blood and informed his superiors at the church.
Uwa, who recently gained admission into UNIBEN was thereafter rushed to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital where she narrated her ordeal.
She, however, died three days after as a result of the injuries she sustained.
The case has been reported at the Oregbeni Police Station, Benin as many Nigerians wonder how the 22-year-old student was raped and killed in broad daylight and inside a church.
There have been calls to the Nigeria Police Force and government to ensure the culprits are brought to book.
Rapist should be punished, there should be a penalty for rape!!!!!!!!
