MUHAMMED Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police, says killers of  Uwaila Omozuwa, a 100-level student of the University of Benin, who was raped and murdered over on Saturday May 27 will be brought to book.

Adamu said he has deployed forensic support to the Edo State Police Command to complement and quicken actions in the ongoing investigation into the crime.



    In a statement on Monday by the Police Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba,  shared through the police official Twitter handle, the IGP said the police would unravel the circumstances surrounding the brutal attack and unfortunate death of Omosuwa.
