The body of one Miss Iniubong Umoren has been exhumed by police in Akwa Ibom.
Umoren was declared missing last week when she left her home in search of a job.
Police dug up her body from a shallow grave and deposited it at the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital morgue for autopsy.
A 20-year-old suspect Uduak Frank Akpan has been arrested.
Earlier reports claimed that Akpan lured Umoren to his house under the pretext of giving her a job, then sexually assaulted her, which led to her death.
Police spokesman Odiko MacDon said in a press release yesterday that the Command received a report of Umoren’s disappearance on April 30.
MacDon said Akpan has confessed to killing the victim and burying her.
”Following available leads, men of the Anti-Kidnapping Squad of the Command led by CSP Inengiye IGOSI consolidated on the initial great progress made by the DPO Uruan, SP Samuel Ezeugo, and arrested the perpetrator who confessed to have lured his victim to his house in the guise of giving her a job, but ended up sexually and physically assaulting her which led to her death. To cover his tracks, he dragged and buried her in a shallow grave in his father’s compound.
”The suspect confessed to have told his Local Government Chairman of his atrocity before escaping to Calabar and was never at any time handed over to the Police by anyone”, MacDon said, adding that the suspect has confessed to being a serial rapist.
