Nigerians on social media have reacted after Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) condemned the killing of Vera Omozuwa.
Recall that Omozuwa was raped and killed by hoodlums who forced their way into a Redeemed church in Benin, Edo state.
She was a 100 level student of the University of Benin.
Condemning the heinous crime, Pastor Adeboye said the church is already looking into the matter and urged everyone to stay calm. He also prayed for the family of the deceased.
A Twitter user with the handle @koleosoibukun asked why the cleric cannot use the power of God to fish out the perpetrators.
He wrote: "Televangelists call out people's names, addresses and phone numbers on TV. But they never use this "power" when it really matters. Baba has "prophetic anointing", why not use this to fish out the criminals? This is a chance to prove the potency of Yahweh."
Another user with the handle @flosek4u assured that the perpetrators would be apprehended soon because they desecrated the house of God and also committed murder.
