Recall that The Fidelinfo earlier reported that about six persons have been paraded by the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) as suspected gruesome killers of 100 level University of Benin student, Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, which trended across the social media with the hashtag #JusticeForUwa.
The Fidelinfo understands that she was attacked in a church in May during the total lockdown where she had gone to read. She later died at the hospital.
One of those identified has narrated how they killed the young lady, he said:
“Five of us entered the church. I was outside watching if anybody was coming, Neslon, Azubike and Lucky who ran away had monitored whether anybody was in the church.
“They then carried a 2 by 4 wood, beckoned on me to come and we all entered the church the same time. I now engaged the girl while Nelson hit her with the wood on her neck.
“The girl fell, scattered the table and the books she was reading, I now rushed towards her and as she was about to get up, I hit her with the fire extinguisher. But the truth is that we did not rape the girl.
He then rounded up by indicting one Mrs Ade Mary as sponsoring the killing, he said she asked them to kill her because people liked the late Uwa and hates her own daughter.
On her part, the alleged sponsor of the killing, Mrs Mary Ade said “they lied against me, first they alleged that I gave them one million naira to kill her because they claimed I said everybody liked Uwaila and didn’t like my daughter.
“They changed the story again to say I asked them to kill her so that my store would become very big. I am waiting for the matter to be taken to court because I know nothing about the killing and the issue of N1 million or N1.5 million”
Another accused, Tina Samuel said she had not seen her son for over five months and was not shielding him. “I don’t know where he was, I was in the village in Nikorogha in Edo state, where I stayed to sell clothes while my son stayed in Benin.
“I just saw some policemen who said the commissioner of police wanted to see me and I followed them. When I got here, they asked me where my son was but I had not seen my son, as I was not based in Benin.
