Suspected killers of Miss Uwaila Omozua, a 100-level University of Benin (UNIBEN) student, have been paraded by the Edo state police command.

Edo State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Johnson Kokumo, on Wednesday, parading the six persons suspected to be involved in the murder of the 21-year-old, the Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Muhammad, was distressed at the news of the murder of female student and instructed the culprits be brought to book.

Uwaila, a 100 level Microbiology student, was killed by some suspected rapists at the Redeem Christian Church of God in Benin City where she had gone to read on the night she was attacked.

One of the suspected killers, Collins Uligbe, from Agbor in Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State, disclosed while being paraded that his landlady, Mrs Mary Ade, gave them N1 million to kill the undergraduate.

Collins who said he attends the same church the student attended, said that he was asked by the landlady to wipe Uwaila’s private part with an handkerchief so that she could use it for ritual purposes and prosper in her business.

However, the landlady denied the allegation, saying she neither gave him the money nor asked him to wipe the lady’s private part.

The commissioner of police, gave the names of the other suspected killers as Nelson Ogbebor, Tina Samuel, another lady, Valentine Akato and Nosa Osabohien.

According to him, the postmortem results confirmed that the said victim was raped before she was murdered.
