Job seeker’s murder: I demanded sex from victim, says suspect


The suspect involved in the death of a job seeker, Uduak Frank Akpan, confessed that he demanded sex from the victim, Iniubong Umoren, which led to fracas and her death.

He made this confession while fielding questions from journalists shortly after the police in Akwa Ibom State Police paraded him.

The State Police Commissioner, Andrew Amiengheme, said the suspect was paraded on Friday to dispel the rumour that he committed suicide in police custody.

Answering questions from journalists, Uduak said he invited Umoren over non-existing job and then demanded to have sex with her.

He said the job-seeker agreed to his demand but demanded that he should put on a condom.

Uduak said Umoren became angry when he removed the condom and she hit him on the head with a stabiliser, which he in turn used on her, resulting in her death.

The suspect stated, “I asked her whether she can work on a farm as a secretary, she said she can and that she’s ready to do the job. So, when she came, I revealed to her that this farm doesn’t exist and that it was just a hoax.

“I told her that before she leaves that I’ll like to have sex with her, and she agreed. But she gave a condition that I should use a condom, which I did. When I removed the condom, she became furious, so she took the nearby stabiliser to hit me on my head. Then she bit my left ring finger.

“In a bid to stop her, I used the stabiliser to hit her and she fell and started bleeding, thereafter she died.”

When he was, however, asked by journalists to show the mark of the wound he suffered, he could not show any.

Uduak said Umoren was the only victim he had killed out of the about six other women that had fallen victim to his evil antics.

Meanwhile, the murdered job-seeker, Umoren was buried on Friday in Akwa Ibom amid tears and wailing from family members and friends.
