(CNN) -- It should have been one of the safest places to seek refuge. Instead, Uwaila Vera Omozuwa was attacked as she studied in church, according to Nigerian police.
The 22-year-old died on May 30, just days after the brutal assault inside the church of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, or RCCG, in Benin city, a spokesman told CNN.
A Nigeria police spokesman described Omozuwa's death as a "brutal attack" in a statement and said the force would "bring the perpetrators of the callous act to book in the shortest possible time."
