I tricked Iniubong Umoren because of experiences with prostitutes – Suspect

Iniubong Umoren alleged killer Uduak Akpan

Uduak Akpan the prime suspect in the murder of Iniubong Umoren, a philosophy graduate of the University of Uyo, Akwa Ibom on Friday said he tricked her to avenge his experiences with prostitutes.

Mr Akpan, who was studying public administration at Obong University, Obong Ntak, told the press at the state police headquarters in Uyo that he had lured and raped six women with similar fake job offers but denied killing any of them apart from Umoren.

Also paraded by the police was his father Frank Akpan.

“What happened was that she came for the supposed job interview. I decided to use a reverse psychology on her. I told her whether she can work in a farm that hard drugs are kept as a secretary,” Akpan, 20, said.

“She said that she was ready to work. When she came, I told her this farm doesn’t exist’ that it was just a hoax.

“I told her that before we could even start I would like to have sex with her and she agreed but she gave a condition that I should use a condom which I agreed.

“While I removed the condom, she became furious and picked the nearby stabiliser to hit me on my head. She bit my left ring finger and tried to reach for the door, screaming.

“While I was bleeding, in a bid to stop her, I used the stabiliser she also used to hit her. And when I hit her she fell there after she died.”

According to him, his father was not around and never assisted him in any way to either kill or bury remains of the deceased.

Asked why he invited the lady to his house when there was no job offer, the suspect said: “Initially, I used reversed psychology on her. I have had very bad experiences with runs girls and prostitutes.

“I asked whether she can work in a farm that hard drugs are kept and she accepted. She even told me she took marijuana and cocaine.

“I felt that that was the best way to revenge for the runs girls and prostitutes. I used to patronise prostitutes but now I don’t.

“I am not happy about what has happened. But the commissioner of police has assured Akwa Ibomites and the entire world that justice will take its course.”
