Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel has asked the Police in the state to ensure the full administration of justice in the alleged murder of Miss Iniobong Umoren.

Ms Umoren, 26, a graduate of Philosophy from the University of Uyo, was abducted, raped, assaulted and eventually murdered by one Uduak Frank Akpan, 20, according to the Police.

Governor Emmanuel said on Monday May 3 that “all persons involved in this crime” must be brought to book.

In a statement by the Commissioner for Information & Strategy Comrade Ini Ememobong, the Governor thanked the police for the arrest and interrogation of the suspect who had reportedly confessed to the crime.

The 54-year-old commiserated with the deceased family “on this very painful loss” and prayed to God to comfort them.

The Governor said that the “Akwa Ibom State Government is deeply saddened by the news of the demise of Miss Iniobong Umoren” and that “this news which was conveyed by the Police is heart-wrenching and most disturbing considering the age of the persons involved”.

“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,” the statement said. “Our state must remain a safe location for all peace-loving and law-abiding citizens at all times.”
