After Court Placed Iniubong Umoren’s Killer On Death Row, See How The Convict Attempted Escaping

The High Court in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State has sentenced Uduak Akpan to death for the r*pe and murder of a female job seeker, Iniubong Umoren, in the state last year. The judge, Bassey Nkanang, said in his judgment on Thursday that the convict will die by hanging.

Mr. Nkanang also found Mr. Akpan guilty of r*pe and sentenced him to life imprisonment. The judge said the prosecution had proved the case of r*pe and murder against Mr. Akpan beyond doubt. However, he dismissed and acquitted the father and sister of Mr Akpan, who were the 2nd and 3rd defendants in the case.

After the judge read out the verdict, the convicted r*pist tried to escape from the courtroom, but was ambushed by security officers. Mr. Nkanang took more than two hours to finish reading the judgment.

Ms. Umoren went missing on April 29, 2021 after she was lured from her home in Uyo by Uduak Akpan with a fake job interview. The victim’ s friend, Uduak Umoh, said she heard her screaming for help when she contacted her on the phone.

” She sent me a 1 second audio record on WhatsApp and I had to call her back to know if she wanted to say anything to me, but immediately she picked the phone, I heard her screaming, ” Ms. Umoh tweeted during the search for the murdered woman.

Several Nigerians deployed the Twitter hash tag #FingHinyUmoren to see how they can trace the missing woman’ s location or uncover the identity and location of the person she went to meet. The police later exhumed Ms. Umoren in a shallow grave on April 30, 2021, a day after she was r*ped and murdered at Mr. Akpan’ s family compound. Her gruesome murder fueled international and nationwide outrage over rising r*pe cases in Nigeria.
