Senator Dino Melaye has called on relevant agencies to arrest the perpetrators of the rape and murder of Vera Uwaila Omozuwa, a 100-level Microbiology student of the University of Benin, UNIBEN.

He called on the Attorney General of the Federation, Justice Abubakar Malami, the Inspector General of Police, (IGP) Mohammed Adamu, and the Director-General of the Department of States Services, DSS, Yusuf Magaji Bichi, to arrest the demons responsible for the crime.

Melaye, in a tweet on his official Twitter page on Monday, said he would protest in the street if the perpetrators are not arrested.

“Law Enforcement Agencies must find perpetrators of Rape and Murder of 22-Year-old Uwa Omozuwa that happened in a Church in Benin city.

“The Attorney General of the Federation, IGP and DG DSS must unravel the demons responsible, or we take to the street. Enough is Enough.”
