Nigerians on social media have reacted in anger after missing young job seeker, Iniobong Umoren, was reportedly murdered and buried in a shallow grave by her abductor.

The deceased was alleged to have on Thursday, April 29, 2021, gone for a “job interview” at an undisclosed location on Airport road, in the outskirts of Uyo, where she met her killer, Uduak Frank Akpan.

About two hours later she reportedly made a frantic phone call where she was heard screaming before the call was abruptly ended and her phone switched off.

Soon after, 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, hoping that the intelligence provided would help find the missing Iniobong Umoren and bring his abductor to justice.

The suspect, Uduak Akpan, was alleged to have taken the late Miss Umoren to his house where an argument ensued, following which he used a sharp object to hit her on the head, defiled and murdered her.

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 the accused and he ran back to Uruan where the Chairman of Uruan Local Governnent, Surv. Iniobong Ekpeyong, was said to have met the accused’s cousin and asked that he be produced.

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