The Edo State Police Command has arrested one of the suspected killers of a 100-level student of the University of Benin, Uwaila Omosuwa.

The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Operations, Ayoola Ajala made this known on Monday while receiving protesters at the police command.

He assured the protesters that investigation had commenced and “arrests have been made in connection with the murder”.

Some UNIBEN students and members of the public stormed the headquarters of the state police command in Benin to demand justice for Uwaila.

The protesters, who were clad in black attire, staged a walk from the King’s Square area of Benin City to the state police command headquarters at the GRA.

The protesters took pictures and displayed placards with various inscriptions like: ‘Don’t tell me how to dress, tell them not to rape me. Enough is Enough’, ‘Stop raping women! Stop killing women! No means no’, ‘Say no to rape’, ‘Stop raping us’, ‘My body, my choice’, and ‘Don’t be a rape apologist.’
