Uduak Akpan Frank, the first accused in the murder of Iniubong Umoren, was sentenced to death by hanging by the Akwa Ibom State high court in Uyo.
The convict was found guilty of rape and murder in the over two-hour judgement by the presiding Judge, Bassey Nkanang, and sentenced to be hung on the neck until he dies.
In April 2021, Uduak-Abasi Akpan lured Iniubong Umoren out of her home with a phony job interview, then raped and killed her on the outskirts of Uyo.
He later buried her remains in a shallow grave near his family’s home, where the crime was committed.
In his confessional statement, Uduak-Abasi Akpan stated: “I first used condom to have sex with Iniubong Umoren and later removed the condom because I did not enjoy the sex. She became infuriated and I reached out to a stabilizer and a box iron and used it to hit her abdominal part and started to bleed. I hit her again and she screamed. I used her jean trousers and strangled her and she became lifeless.”
In its decision on Thursday, the court stated: “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.”
The Court found Uduak-Abasi Frank Akpan guilty of rape and murder of Iniubong Umoren. However, the court discharged and acquitted his father, Frank Akpan and sister, Bassey Anwan.
