#JusticeForUwa: NANS Wants Rapists/Sex Offenders To Be Sentenced To Death.


Members of the Nigerian students association body, NANS, embarked on a peaceful protest in the streets of Benin, the Edo State Capital on Thursday, demanding for justice over the death of their colleague Uwaila Omozuwa, an undergraduate of the University of Benin who was recently raped and killed inside a church.

They demanded that a death sentence be pronounced for sex offenders in the country.

The lawmaker representing Ovia Federal Constituency, Dennis Idahosa, who also joined the students in the solidarity march vowed that he would move a motion to support capital punishment at the floor of the house.

Meanwhile, the new Commissioner of Police in Edo State, Johnson Kokumo had earlier on Wednesday promised that efforts would not be spared in ensuring that the culprits involved in the circumstances that led to Uwaila’s death are apprehended and made to face the law.

Kokumo made the promise when he paid a condolence visit to the family of the deceased.
