Adeboye in the post said;

All I can do at this time is to pray for the family of Omozuwa and do everything possible working with relevant authorities to bring the perpetrators to book.

I and members of my family condemn this act strongly and urge everyone to stay calm as we are already looking into the matter and cooperating with the police to establish the facts of the shocking situation… #justiceforuwa.

The hashtag, #justiceforuwa has been trending on social media with hundreds of Nigerians calling for an efficient investigation and arrest and conviction of the perpetrators.

Meanwhile, Edo state Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has ordered an investigation into the death of Omozuwa.

In a statement on Sunday, Crusoe Osagie, special adviser to the governor on media and communication strategy, said the Governor has ordered the police and other security agencies to fish out the culprits and bring them to justice.

Osagie said;

The governor is deeply saddened by the news of the death of Miss Vera Uwaila Omozuwa. We have been in consultation with the Edo State Command of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) and have mandated thorough investigation of the matter to ensure that those who are responsible for this heinous crime are brought to justice.

He said the state government would ensure that the violence against persons (VAP) law and other laws related to rape and sexual abuse are exploited to get justice for the deceased.
