The Akwa Ibom State Police Command in a bid to dispel rising suicide rumours about Uduak Frank Akpan, the man accused of raping and killing Akwa Ibom job seeker, Iniubong Umoren, today May 14 paraded him before newsmen in the state capital.
Uduak Frank Akpan was paraded alongside his father even as he claims he killed Ini Umoren in self defense and not intentionally.
Trouble started when Inubong Umoren had gone for a job interview after she posted on Twitter that she needed a job and Frank Akpan invited her to come for an interview.
She told her best friend about this and the friend raised alarm when she received an audio message from Ini screaming after which Ini’s number was no longer reachable.
Narrating the incident while being paraded, Frank Akpan said: “I asked her whether she could work in a farm where hard drugs are kept, as a secretary… she said she could.
“I asked her that I would like to have sex with her before she left. She agreed and gave a condition that I would have to use condom, which I did.
“While I removed the condom, she became furious and removed the nearby stabilizer to hit me on the head.”
“While I was bleeding, in order to stop her, I used the stabilizer to hit her. When I hit her, she fell.”
Uduak admitted that Ini is not his first victim. He said he has treated five other ladies in the same way but Ini is the only one who died.
