Nobody is doing anything about many assassinations in Nigeria – Iniubong Umoren’s killer says in court after he was convicted

Uduak Akpan, who was sentenced to death by hanging today, August 4, for the murder of jobseeker Iniubong Umoren, told the court after his conviction that no one is doing anything about the “many assassinations” in Nigeria.

A State High Court convicted the murderer, Uduak Akpan, Thursday, in Uyo for killing Iniubong Umoren last year, when he lured her to a location with a fake job interview.

The judge, Bassey Nkanang, said Mr Akpan will be put to death by hanging.

Mr Nkanang also found Mr Akpan guilty of rape and sentenced him to life imprisonment.

After his conviction by the court, the judge asked Mr Akpan if he would like to say something to the court.

Akpan responded: “My Lord, I am not guilty.”

But the judge told him that the court had passed that stage. He told him he should say “something” related to the case.

Akpan then said: “My Lord, in our country, there’re many assassinations, but nobody is doing something about it.”
