Governor Obaseki visits family of Uwaila Omozuwa, The UNIBEN student who was raped and murdered inside RCCG church last year

In the spirit of Christmas, the Governor of Benue state, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has paid a surprise visit to Uwaila Omozuwa’s family, a 100 Level Microbiology student of UNIBEN that was raped and murdered inside RCCG church last year.



Gov Obaseki while having a interactive session with the Omozuwa family, he said;


”Uwaila did not die in vain. The federal and state governments have taken stiffer actions against gender-based violence. We are here to continue to celebrate her life as we continue to fight against gender-based violence.

Her death was the reason for the establishment of gender-based violence committee. The Edo State Government has put mechanisms in place to fight gender-based violence-related offenses.



Her death led to the promulgation of the Violence Against Persons (VAP) law in the state and people are now aware of the crime.”

The news of the death of Uwaila Omozuwa and circumstances surrounded her death caused national outrage last year. Her body was found inside a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Edo state after she had been raped.
