A suspect arrested in connection with the murder of Iniobong Umoren (Hiny umoren) has recounted how he murdered her in his apartment in the outskirt of Uyo.
Uduak Frank Akpan, who hails from Nung Ikot Obio, Akwa-Ibom, says he hit Iniobong with a sharp object on her head, then proceeded to rape her.
He said all these took place during an argument and struggle while he was trying to have his way with her.
He said when he found out that she was dead, he decided to bury her in a shallow grave.
His action was exposed when Iniobong’s friend, Umoh Uduak, took to her social media platform (Twitter) two days ago to announce that her friend had gone missing.
Iniobong was said to have gone missing on Thursday, April 29, 2021, after she went to the outskirt of Uyo for a job.
Frank was caught in Uruan, after he ran away from Oron, due to the strong uproar on social media. The chairman of Uruan LGA caught Frank’s cousin and asked that he provided his cousin for questioning.
In the end, Frank was caught and he confessed to killing and raping Iniobong in his house. He was later handed over to the DPO of Uruan police for further persecution.
