The Edo State Government has given the State Commissioner of Police, CP Funsho Adegboye, seven days to fish out those who raped and killed a 22-year-old University of Benin fresh graduate, Miss Adekolure Idowu Glory.

Glory was allegedly raped and killed in Iyowa Community, Benin City, on Thursday, June 13, 2024.

She was said to be on her way home from processing her clearance when she was abducted, tortured and raped to death by yet-to-be-identified persons and her remains dropped close to her mother’s house.

The Governor in a statement by the State Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, expressed shock and sadness over the incident, noting that order has been given to the State Commissioner of Police to fish out the perpetrators of the dastardly and unconscionable act within the next 7 days.

The statement reads:  “The Edo State Government is shocked and deeply saddened by the gruesome murder of Adekolure Idowu Glory, a fresh graduate of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), who was allegedly raped and killed by yet-to-be-identified persons in Iyowa Community, within the Benin metropolis.

“It is most disheartening to hear of the sad incident and the state government condemns, in the strongest terms, the dastardly and unconscionable act.

“The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, expresses his deep-felt condolences to the family of the victim and has ordered the State Commissioner of Police, CP Funsho Adegboye, to thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to the death of Miss Adekolure Idowu Glory and fish out the perpetrators of the heinous and mindless act within the next 7 days.”
