Six suspects have been apprehended and paraded by the Edo State police for the rape and killing of UNIBEN undergraduate, Vera Omozuwa inside a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
After months of investigation, the state police command has arrested and paraded the suspects identified as Nelson Ogbebor, Akato Valentine, Mrs Tina Samuel, Mrs Mary Ade, Nosa Osabohien and Collins Ulegbe.
A breakthrough in the investigation came after the police traced the phone of the deceased to one of the suspects, Nosa Osabohien.
Nosa who claimed to be a phone repairer said he bought Vera’s phone from Collins Uyegbulen, who was arrested and confessed to being a part of the murder.
Collins told the police that he used the fire extinguisher in the church to hit late Vera after the other suspects took turns to rape her. He gave the names of other members of his gang as Akato Valentine and Collins Ogbebor.
He also said that one Mary Ade gave them N1m to kill the suspect and then use a handkerchief she gave them to clean the blood from the private part of the deceased.
Another suspect, Tina Samuel, was arrested for allegedly obstructing the police from arresting her son, Lucky, who is one of the suspects.
