Nigerian police have arrested six people in connection with the rape and murder of a 22-year-old student, Uwavera Omozuwa in a church.

Uwavera had been studying in a “quiet” church near her home in Benin City when she was attacked in May.

She was found in a pool of blood, with serious head injuries and having been raped. She died in hospital three days later.

The crime sparked outrage across Nigeria.

For three months, police hunted for the suspects. This week they arrested four men and two women.

While parading the suspects, a police spokesman said they would appear in court as soon investigations are finished.

Rape and gender based violence is rampant in Nigeria with very low detection and prosecution rates.

There have been widespread protests with calls for justice and stricter control measures.
