Uduak Akpan, the man who killed Iniubong Umoren, is rumored to have become pretty upset in the courtroom after receiving the death penalty.
A high court in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, sentenced the young man to death by hanging today, August 4, for raping and murdering the 24-year-old job seeker in 2021.
Prior to her NYSC program, Iniubong Umoren, a Second Class (Upper Division) graduate of philosophy from the University of Uyo, departed in search of a job but never came back.
