The unexpected has happened as a job-seeking young lady, Iniobong Umoren who had been declared missing, has been found raped, brutally murdered and buried in a shallow grave in Akwa Ibom State.

NaijaOnPoint.com (TNG) reports the deceased was alleged to have on Thursday, April 29, 2021 went for a job interview at an undisclosed location along Airport Road in the outskirts of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

Umoren’s friend that goes by the Twitter handle: @UmohUduak1 first raised the alarm, and initiated the search for her missing friend, with no one ever expecting the unthinkable and the tragedy that has struck.

The young lady with life and a future has had her life snuffed out of her and cut short by her abductor, one Uduak Frank Akpan, reportedly from Nung Ikot Obio.

Umoren’s friend narrated how about two hours after leaving home for the supposed job interview, she reportedly made a frantic phone call where she was heard screaming before the call abruptly ended.

“Her phone line has been switched off ever since,” @UmohUduak1 recapped, and soon after, the social media went viral with her story which saw the Internet being used to unmask her abductor.

24 hours later, Nigerians on social media provided evidence, locations, contacts and almost everything needed to unmask her kidnapper with the hope that the intelligence provided will help in finding the missing young lady and bring his abductor to justice.

The suspect was alleged to have taken the late Miss Umoren to his house where an argument ensued and in the process, he used an object to hit her on the head resulting in her death. He was alleged to have hurriedly buried her in a shallow grave and ran to Oron to hide.

Following pressure by the Police and Nigerians on social media, Oron became uncomfortable for him and he ran back to Uruan.

The Chairman of Uruan LGA, Surv. Iniobong Ekpeyong was said to have met the accused cousin and asked him to bring the accused to him.

When he was taken before the Chairman, he was asked to be truthful about what actually transpired.

It was there he confessed to his Local Government Chairman that he actually killed and buried her in a shallow grave.

A shocked Surv Ekpeyong had no choice but to call the DPO of Uruan LGA and handed over the suspect to the Police for further investigation and prosecution.

However, @UmohUduak1 later revealed that the abductor of Umoren actually raped her before she was brutally murdered.

“They raped and killed my friend,” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, the police had confirmed that two suspects had been arrested and that investigation was ongoing.

However, the police is yet to release a comprehensive report on the matter.
