Man Rapes, Kills Job Seeker In Akwa Ibom

It has been reported that the Akwa Ibom State Police Command has arrested one Uduak Frank Akpan in connection to the rape and murder of a job seeker, Iniobong Umoren.

This was revealed in a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state on Sunday, Odiko Macdon,  noting that 20-year-old Akpan lured Umoren to his residence under the pretext of offering her a job before he raped, killed and buried the young graduate.

According to reports from the PUNCH, the victim went missing while attending a job interview in Akwa Ibom on Thursday, adding that she had earlier tweeted via her handle, @HinyHumoren, that she needed a job and people had suggested prospective employers to her.

Meanwhile, @UmohUduak1, who identified as the job seeker’s friend, raised the alarm on Thursday via Twitter, that her friend was nowhere to be found, thereby, making the hashtag #FindHinnyHumoren trend on Twitter for days.

However the statement titled,  ‘Update On The Disappearance Of Miss Iniobong Ephraim Umoren’, by the Akwa Ibom police confirmed that Akpan kidnapped, sexually violated and subsequently buried the victim to cover up his evil deeds.

According to the statement, “The Akwa Ibom State Police Command has arrested one Uduak Frank Akpan, 20 years old for kidnapping, raping and murdering one Miss Iniobong Umoren. On 30/04/2021, the Command received a report on the disappearance of the victim.”

The statement added that, “Following available leads, men of the Anti-Kidnapping Squad of the Command, led by CSP Inengiye Igosi, consolidated on the initial great progress made by the DPO Uruan, SP Samuel Ezeugo and arrested the perpetrator who confessed to have lured his victim to his house in the guise of giving her a job, but ended up sexually and physically assaulting her which led to her death.”

The statement revealed that,“To cover his tracks, he dragged and buried her in a shallow grave in his father’s compound. The deceased has been exhumed and deposited at UUTH (University Of Uyo Teaching Hospital) for autopsy.”

“The suspect confessed to have told his Local Government Chairman of his atrocity before escaping to Calabar and was never at anytime handed over to the Police by Suspect is a confessed serial rapist who has owned up to the raping of other victims. He will be charged to court at the conclusion of investigation,” the statement stressed.
