Though UNIBEN isn’t in session thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, its students have condemned the killing of Omozuwa. A 100 level student of department of physics, who gave her name as Queen Osagie, described the murder of Miss Vera as an act of wickedness and extreme evil. She said the incident had made her realise that no place was safe. I couldn’t imagine such an act happening during a church. The perpetrators must be evil and without hearts to possess taken the lifetime of a fellow person.


Another student from Ekenwan Campus of the university, Bolaji Jokanola, condemned about rape and killing of Vera. He described the act as evil, which shouldn’t be condoned during a decent human society.

But the foremost gruesome part is killing the victim after such an act. It shows the callous heart of the culprits. The society and necessary agencies should take this incident seriously and make sure that the suspects are apprehended and addressed for such crime against humanity, “said Bolaji. Another student from the Ekenwan campus, who gave her name as Rukky, equally decried the dastardly act against the victim. She advised parents to avoid religious bigotry. This act is pure evil. No matter what may need led to Miss Vera’s murder, it can never be justified. We all must attempt to take care with whom we accompany as bad friends lead people into evil ways.


However, should be mindful of where their children attend, especially in the dark. Parents should also enlighten their children on issues like this,” she said.
