Killer of job seeker Iniobong Umoren, Frank Uduak Akpan has said he has raped over six girls using reverse psychology but did not kill any of them.

Iniobong was murdered two weeks ago in Uyo by Uduak.

The rapist and killer who narrated the circumstances surrounding the death of Iniobong Umoren made the confession to newsmen at the weekend while being paraded by the state commissioner of police, CP Andrew Amiegheme, at the command headquarters, Ikot Akpan Abia in Uyo.

He said he has lured over six girls to his den and raped them using reverse psychology but didn’t kill any of them.

The suspect said after he invited the late Inobong Umoren for a fictitious job, he admitted to her that the job never existed.

According to him, “I asked her whether she can work as secretary in a drug farm, she said she can and that she’s ready to do the job.

“So, when she came, I revealed to her that this farm doesn’t exist and that it was just a hoax.

“I told her that before she leaves that I’ll like to have sex with her, and she agreed. But she gave a condition that I should use a condom, which I did. When I removed the condom, she became furious, so she took a stabiliser to hit me on my head. Then she bit my left ring finger. In a bid to stop her, I used the stabilizer to hit her and she fell and started bleeding, thereafter she died,” Uduak said.

The suspect also said that he took the revenge on Umoren for all the harms prostitutes have caused him when he used to patronise them.

“I never knew she will die, but having realise that she was dead I buried her in the shallow grave because I was afraid, but I regret my action,” he said.

Meanwhile the body of the late Iniuobong Umoren has been buried amid wailing and cries by families and friends at her family compound in Oruk Annam local government area of Akwa Ibom State. At the funeral friends and sympathizers rain curses on Uduak Frank Akpan and others behind the heinous crime.

At the lying in state, her family and friends wept uncontrollably, describing the death of Iniubong Umoren as a great loss.
