Iniubong Umoren’s killer Is Not Dead” – Akwa Ibom Police Commissioner Says
Commissioner for Police in Akwa Ibom state, Andrew Amiengheme, has dismissed reports that say Mr. Uduak Ezekiel Akpan, the suspected killer of job seeker, Miss Iniubong Umoren, committed suicide in its police custody.
It was recently reported online that 20-year-old Akpan, who allegedly lured Miss Umoren with a job offer, then raped and killed her, had committed suicide.
According to the reports, Akpan committed suicide with his trousers tied to metal after having his meal. Dismissing the report, the state police commissioner in an interview with The Nation, said: ”It is not true that Uduak Akpan has committed suicide. The suspect is in our custody. Maybe he committed suicide in the bedrooms of those peddling the rumor.”
A few weeks ago, a Nigerian Twitter user went to the platform to raise alarm after her friend who went for a job interview in Akwa Ibom went missing.
According to the lady identified as Umoh Uduak, her friend Iniobong was invited for an interview at an undisclosed location along the airport road in Uyo on Thursday, April 29th.
About two hours later, she allegedly made a disturbing phone call to Uduak and was heard screaming before the call was abruptly ended. Since then, her phone line has been switched off.
Sharing photos and last chat with the missing friend, the Twitter user wrote, “Earlier today she told me she was going for a job interview at airport road which is quite far from her house. To cut everything short, she sent me a 1sec audio record on WhatsApp and I had to call her back to know if she wanted to say something to me but immediately I called her I heard her screaming, Someone, please help her out. It was immediately I got this 1sec voice note from her that I called her and she has not been taking my calls. Y’all help me out. My friend does not deserve any of this, nobody else does.
