23-year-old Uwaila Omozuwa was beaten and raped in her local church in Benin. The animals who took away her innocence and life are on the run.

She’s gone, just like that. A young life cut short because this society breeder animals in men’s bodies.

They smashed her head with a fire extinguisher. They beat her. They raped her. They left her for dead.

She’s dead. She was a young woman who was determined to better her life. She just gained admission into the University of Benin.

May God rest her soul. May her rapists die horrible and painful deaths. May the air, land and sea fight them. May the meet untimely deaths. Evil will never depart from them.
