In what has been a trying time for the enstranged Pastor, it looks as if God has finally proved his mockers and accusers wrong.
Some time ago, I told us to be careful with our accusations on the Pastor who was accused of impregnating late Vera Uwa and organizing her rape and murder to cover up his track. I told us no official statement has been released then and all we’ve seen are all rumours and plots to shake the church.
Finally, an official report from Edo state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Prof Yinka Omorogbe, has cleared the air on the case and wrong accusation on the Pastor.
Prof. Yinka on Friday, 19th June, said the murdered 22-year old student, Uwa Omozuwa was a virgin before she was raped and murdered.
Recall that Uwa’s father had earlier on said the same about his late daughter being a virgin. But enemies of the church were bent on bringing the church down.
The Attorney General, Prof. Yinka reacted to all sorts of reports on social media about the case as “shocking”, including the one about a suspect arrested who claimed that the Pastor sent him to rape and murder Uwa after paying him #1.5million.
Prof. Yinka cleared the air on these fake reports during a protest organised by members of Edo Women Development Initiative to the Nigerian Union of Journalists, Edo state.
She described all the stories flying round as “terrible and shocking”.
According to her, “For example, we saw a terrible lie going round on social media, which was not our regular press, claiming that Uwa was impregnated by her pastor. That lie has been refuted, the story caused serious anguish to the family members. It’s a very terrible story”
She ended by saying “Although we cannot talk at this point, but from the autopsy that was done on Uwa, it was clearly discovered and established that not only was she never pregnant, she was infact, a virgin. How boyfriend and pregnancy came into the story, only God knows”
For some of us who said the Pastor ran away because he was guilty, I made my investigation and found out that when people started spreading rumors about his involvement, he was attacked by some hoodlums. He had to leave the environment to save his life. Also, no body has invited him for questioning, so why coming out to say he’s innocent? Clear conscience they say fears no allegation.
Lastly, if he actually planned to kill Uwa to cover up anything he did, would the church where he Pastors be the best venue?
In all, as investigations are still going on, I believe the perpetrators of Uwa’s rape and murder will soon be apprehended. It may not be immediately, but it’ll be certainly.
Nothing is hidden under the sun.
For now, the Pastor did not impregnate Uwa. He has been vindicated on that.
