Uduak Akpan, the suspected killer of Ini Umoren, the fresh graduate who met her death while hunting for job, says he took the lady’s life in self-defence.

Speaking with newsmen while he was paraded by the Akwa Ibom Police Command on Friday, Uduak said he had wanted to have sex with her but she hit him and he returned the favour.

“I asked her whether she could work in a farm where hard drugs were kept; she said she could,” Akpan said during a session monitored by FIJ on Facebook Live.

“I asked her that I would like to have sex with her before she left. She agreed and gave a condition that I would have to use condom, which I did.

“While I removed the condom, she became furious and removed the nearby stabilizer to hit me on the head… While I was bleeding, in oder to stop her, I used the stabilizer to hit her. When I hit her, she fell.”

Uduak, who claimed he hit the victim with a pressing iron, also atmitted at a point that five other ladies had suffered a similar fate in his hands, although none died.

In his own account, Uduak’s father claimed he was not aware of his son’s criminal activities until he was invited to Uran Police Station.  

“I wasn’t aware, I’m not happy about it,” he said. “I was asked to call him and I called him back. When he arrived, I was allowed to interact with him. He told me he did something wrong and that he was sorry. I blamed him: ‘Why did you do this? You are not my only child; I have two other children and they are women. If anybody does this to your sisters would you be happy?’ He said no.”   

Addressing journalists during the event, Andrew Amiengheme, Akwa Ibom State Commissioner of Police, debunked claims that there were shallow graves and bones at the crime scene.

“There are no shallow graves anywhere; there are no bones anywhere,” he said. “That is the truth. But if anybody can show me any shallow grave there, go and show me. But I know there are no shallow graves.”
