•Late Iniubong Umoren



An operative of Department of State Services (DSS), Mr. Ama Okeke said yesterday that killer of the late Iniubong Umoren, a jobseeker, strangled her with jeans trousers.

One Uduak-Abasi Akpan is facing trial for Umoren’s murder.

Okeke, the 10th prosecution witness (PW10), was giving evidence before a court in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.

Umoren was reportedly raped and killed on April 2021.

Okeke told the court that a police team interrogating the suspect recorded his statement, in which he admitted to raping Umoren and later striking her in the abdomen with a stabiliser.

The DSS operative quoted Akpan as saying he stuffed the lady’s mouth with a piece of cloth to muffle her shouts before strangling her with a pair of jeans trousers.

Justice Bassey Nkanang adjourned the case till February 15. (The Nation)
