PROTEST AS AKWA IBOM FAKE RECRUITER ARRESTED FOR RAPING, KILLING JOBSEEKER
Akwa Ibom State Police Command has arrested a fake recruiter, Uduak Akpan, for purportedly raping and killing a jobseeker, Iniubong Umoren, in the Airport Road area of Uyo.
It was discovered that Umoren had on Thursday gone for a job interview after Akpan allegedly attracted her with a fake offer on social media.
However, a few minutes after she sent a message to her friend, Umoh Uduak, about her leaving for the venue of the interview, she became unreachable.
Uduak, who raised the alarm on her Twitter handle @UmohUduak1, alleged that she heard the victim screamed from a one-second voice note she sent, adding that efforts to reach her on the telephone proved abortive as her calls were not picked before the mobile phone became unreachable.
Following the #FindHinnyHumoren hashtag created on social media, Akpan’s identity and the location was uncovered and when he got to know that he was been looked for, our correspondent learnt that the suspect absconded from his home.
It was gathered that the victim was buried in a shallow grave after Akpan allegedly raped and murdered her.
