PRESS RELEASE BY AKWA IBOM STATE GOVT: Job Seeker, Miss Iniubong Umoren
The Akwa Ibom State Government is deeply saddened by the news of the demise of Miss Iniobong Umoren, who is said to have been abducted, raped, assaulted and eventually murdered by Uduak Frank Akpan. This news which was conveyed by the Police is heart wrenching and most disturbing considering the age of the persons involved.
The Governor, while thanking the police for the arrest and interrogation of the suspect, has communicated to the Police hierarchy in the state, his desire for the full administration of justice to the culprit and all persons involved in this crime. This is the least that will be acceptable.
We condemn in totality the gruesome acts that led to the loss of the life of an innocent young woman, whose sincere desire was to earn a decent living. Our state must remain a safe location for all peace loving and law abiding citizens at all times.
We commiserate with the deceased family on this very painful loss and pray God to comfort them.
Comrade Ini Ememobong
Honourable Commissioner for Information & Strategy
