Reports confirmed that Uwa Omozuwa, the young girl and level 100 university student who was raped and murdered at a Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) branch in Benin Edo State by unknown persons was a virgin before the incident happened, according to Professor Yinka Omorogbe, the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice for the state.
Omorogbe cleared the air that she was not pregnant for any pastor before she was raped and killed.
The rumour that Uwa was pregnant for a pastor before she was murdered worsened the family’s grief.
The commissioner for Justice said everyone was taken aback and saddened by what happened to her and further saddened by rumour in the media.
She stated further that: “It was terrible. It was a brutal experience (the pregancy rumour). That has been refuted, though it caused serious anguish to the family members. It’s a terrible story. Though one cannot talk at this point, from the autopsy done on Uwa, it was clearly established that not only was she not pregnant, she was a virgin, so, how boyfriend and pregnancy came in, only God knows.”
Sources close to the family revealed they are receiving tremendous support from the RCCG, where she was a choir member before she died.
It was confirmed that Pastor Enoch Adeboye meticulously oversees the support programme put in place for the family.
