Uduak Frank Akpan who confessed to killing job seeker, Iniobong Umoren, 26, in police custody, tells the media on May 14, 2021, that he perpetrated the act with a voltage stabilizer.

On Thursday, April 29, 2021, 20-year-old Akpan lured Umoren, a fresh graduate of the Akwa Ibom State University, to his lair in the guise of offering her a job and took her life after raping and torturing her to death, police say.

The incident transpired in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, south of Nigeria.

Sporting a self-indicting yellow T-shirt on a wet day in Uyo, Akpan says he acted in self-defense after Umoren bit his index finger.

He had lured Umoren to his home from social media.

“She came for a supposed job interview and I used reverse psychology on her. I asked her whether she can work in a farm where hard drugs are kept–as a secretary. And she said that she can and that she’s ready to do the job.

“So, when she came, I revealed to her that this farm doesn’t exist, that there is no farm like that. That it was just a hoax. Then I told her that before she leaves, I’d like to have sex with her. She agreed,” he says.

He adds that; “then she gave a condition that I should use a condom, which I did. When I removed the condom, she became furious and used the nearby stabilizer to hit me on my head and bit me on my left hand finger.

“While I was bleeding, in a bid to stop her, I used the stabilizer to hit her and when I hit her, she fell and started bleeding and thereafter, she died.”

Akpan insists that he acted alone and that his dad and a certain Kufre Effiong, were not in on his serial rape acts.

Umoren has been buried today, May 14, 2021.

Umoren’s murder has shocked and outraged an entire nation, with the hashtag #JusticeForHinyUmoren trending on social media platforms since the day of the murder.
