Killer of Akwa Ibom jobseeker says he is ready to die if found guilty
Uduak Frank Akpan the suspected killer of Akwa Ibom jobseeker Iniobong Umoren has revealed how he killed the job seeker.
The suspect who was paraded by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command alongside his father said he killed the girl in self defence.
He said “When I met her, I asked her whether she would like to work in a farm where hard drug are grown as a secretary and she agreed.
“When we got to the house, I asked her for sex and she agreed and insisted I use condom.
“It was when I tried to remove the condom that she picked up the stabiliser and hit me and blood was coming out of my head. At that point, I grabbed the stabiliser and also hit her, trying make her submit peacefully.
“It was not my intention to kill her, but if at the end of everything, I am found guilty, I am ready to also die,” he said.
The 200-level Public Administration student of Obong University, a private institution in Etim Ekpo Local Government Area denied the allegation of other shallow graves, clothes, books, and NYSC shoes discovered in the compound as belonging to those he had killed earlier.
“The NYSC pair of shoes belong to my mother and we used it for farm work. The books belong to me and my sister,” he said, adding that the late Iniubong was the only lady that died among the six he had lured and slept with using the same phony job offers as bait.
He said he killed the late Iniubong in anger after several rough experiences he had in the hands of those he described as “runs-girls and prostitutes.”
The state commissioner of police, Andrew Amiengheme, said it was necessary to have the press conference because of the rumour that was going around in the media that the suspect had committed suicide in the cell to shield other accomplices.
“I don’t know anywhere in the world that a suspect will be allowed to use trousers in the cell to the extent of killing himself with it.
“Social media that is supposed to be a tool that will work to the advantage of the police has become something that is working against them,” he said.
He revealed in the investigation so far that no mass grave was discovered in the compound of the incident and promised that diligent prosecution would followed with case to be transfered from the homicide section to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) when all angles in the matter have been fully explored.
