The GO of Nigeria’s Redeemed Christian Chruch of God has spoken up on the death of Vera Omozuwa.
Pastor Adeboye took to his official Instagram account to condemn the rape and murder of the 22-year-old University of Benin student while reassuring outraged Nigerians that the church is willing to cooperate with the police on bringing the perpetrators to book.
“All I can do at this time is to pray for the family of Omozuwa and do everything possible working with relevant authorities to bring the perpetrators to book”, Adeboye said.
“I and members of my Family condemn this act strongly and urge everyone to stay calm as we are already looking into the matter and cooperating with the police to establish the facts of the shocking situation. #justiceforuwa”.
The latest reaction follows nearly 24 hours of Twitter backlash for the church’s delayed response to the shocking incident that occurred in one of its branches in Edo state.
Recall that Vera Omozuwa was raped and fatally beaten in the church where she reportedly went to read.
