Murdered Akwa Ibom Jobseeker Iniobong Umoren Buried In Hometown

By  | 

The remains of Iniobong Umoren were on Friday buried in her hometown, Nung Ita in Oruk Anam Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.

Ms Umoren, an orphan and 26-year-old graduate of Philosophy from the University of Uyo, was murdered while seeking employment in Uyo.

The police have arrested a suspect, Uduak Akpan, who confessed to the crime, although he claims it was in self-defence.

Ms Umoren was also physically and sexually assaulted, the Akwa Ibom police have said.

Mr Akpan had invited Ms Umoren for a job interview at Airport Road, Ibiaku junction on April 29 where he apparently carried out the atrocities.

Her corpse was found 48 hours after she went missing, largely as a result of calls made on social media by her friend Uduak Umoh.
