Court Sentences Uduak-Abasi Akpan To Death Over The Murder Of Job Seeker, Iniubong Umoren

The High Court in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, has sentenced Uduak-Abasi Akpan to death by hanging for the murder of Iniubong Umoren.

It was gathered that the court discharged and acquitted his father, Frank Akpan, and his sister, Bassey Anwan.

It could be recalled that Uduak-Abasi Akpan had lured Iniubong Umoren out of her home with a fake job interview, after which he proceeded to rape and kill her in April, in the outskirts of Uyo.

While delivering judgment on Thursday, the court held that:

“The use of dangerous weapons such as a stabilizer and a box iron to attack delicate parts of the human body like the head is a clear pointer that death was probable the consequences of the action.”
