President Muhamamdu Buhari has finally reacted to the rape and murder of Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, the 100-level microbiology student of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) by unknown assailants.
Coming against the backdrop of an order by the Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Adamu that the investigations into the case be transferred to Abuja, Buhari, took to his Twitter page on Tuesday, to comment on the matter.
Describing the murder as a “barbaric act”, he sympathised with Omozuwa’s family and charged the Nigeria police to ensure those responsible for the 22-year-old’s death are brought to book.
“I would like to offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Uwaila Omozuwa. I expect the Nigeria Police Force to speedily and diligently investigate this case and ensure that all the culprits responsible for this barbaric act are brought to justice,” said Buhari.
