#JusticeForUwa:Open Letter to Nigeria Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu

Dear IGP

We, the leadership of The Africa Security Forum (Int’l) call for the establishment of a “Gender Violence Reduction Unit” within Nigeria Police Force and an urgent review of operational procedural for handling raped cases in the country.

Approximately 5 years ago, UNICEF reported in 2015 that one in four girls in Nigeria had experienced sexual violence before the age of 18.

In fact, findings from a National Survey carried out in 2014 revealed that 24.8% of females’ ages 18 to 24 years experienced sexual abuse prior to age 18 of which 5.0% sought help, with only 3.5% receiving any services.

An alarming publication in Nigerian Medical Journal approximately 7 years (2014) analysed hospital records of 76 sexual assault victims in Ile-Ife from 2007-2011 found that the majority (76.1%) of the victims that sought help at a hospital did so within 24 hours of their sexual assault, but forensic evidence was not gathered because rape kits have yet to be introduced in the country.

The rape and murder of Ms Vera Uwaila Omozuwa (a University of Benin student)

 in a local church vicinity belonging to the Redeemed Christian Church of God further illustrate the urgent need for a strategic review and change of operational procedure on gender related violence particularly RAPE.

We are calling on Nigeria Police Force to send specialist team to handle that case and ensure the following is done:

1. Collection of indicated medical specimens for diagnostic purposes.

2. Ensure that the collection of forensic specimens obtained from the victim is secured.

3. Guarantee that a dedicated officer would be assigned to the victim’s family   throughout the investigation with monthly case update

4. Ensure that all suspect DNA are reviewed against specimens taking from the victim’s medical-forensic 


5. In order to boost community confidence in Nigeria Police; an ‘Officer in the Case’ (OIC) who is a plain clothes constable with specialist training in the investigation of rape and serious sexual offences should head the case.

Information in the public domain confirms that Omozuwa’s attackers reportedly smashed her head with a fire extinguisher and left her unconscious in the Church. 

Thus, it is our hope that the crime scene is now secured and fingerprints taken from the fire extinguisher and use to eliminate suspects who are interrogated. 

The people that committed this diabolical crime did not descend from the sky; they reside in that neigbhourhood and thus the police should be in a better position to resolve this case.

We are also using this medium to call on Place of Worship to review their security plans and update it with appropriate security preventive/protective measure to aid reduction in crime within their setting.

The Inspector General of Police should instruct the appropriate team within the police structure to issue guidance to Place of Worship across the 774 local government about security management and their responsibility.

Finally, the reckless killing of Tina Ezekwe by an officer of the law is further remainder that there is urgent need for a practical reform of Nigeria Police Forum and these changes must be people driven.

Nigerians are watching and the next move by the IGP will determine whether the institution is ready to be part of a great Nigeria we are working collectively to build…

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?

    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve
    worked hard on. Any recommendations? 0mniartist asmr

    Howdy! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout
    out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your
    blog posts. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go
    over the same topics? Appreciate it!

  • April 29, 2021 at 2:06 am

    I just like the valuable info you supply for
    your articles. I’ll bookmark your blog and
    check again here regularly. I am relatively certain I’ll learn a lot of new stuff proper right here!
    Best of luck for the following!

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  • April 29, 2021 at 12:40 pm

    Its not my first time to visit this site, i am browsing this
    site dailly and take pleasant information from here all the time.

    Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Many thanks, However I am encountering issues with your RSS.
    I don’t know the reason why I am unable to subscribe
    to it. Is there anybody else getting similar RSS problems?
    Anyone who knows the solution will you kindly respond?

  • May 4, 2021 at 7:58 am

    Everything published was actually very reasonable.

    But, consider this, what if you wrote a catchier post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good, but what if you added something that makes people want more?
    I mean #JusticeForUwa:Open Letter to Nigeria Inspector General of
    Police, Mohammed Adamu – Newsnowonline is kinda vanilla.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they write
    article headlines to grab people interested. You might try adding
    a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about
    what you’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might make
    your blog a little bit more interesting.

  • May 7, 2021 at 1:50 pm

    Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog based upon on the same subjects you discuss
    and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers
    would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested,
    feel free to send me an e mail.

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    before writing. I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

    make it important. More and more people should check this
    out and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you are not more
    popular since you definitely have the gift.
