BREAKING NEWS: Missing Job-Seeker, Who Was Tricked To Attend Fake Interview In Uyo, Killed And Buried
A Job-Seeker known as Hiny Humoren, who was tricked to attended an interview at Ibaiko Ibaiku close to Airport Road in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, has been killed and buried.
This was confirmed by a tweep, @UmohUduak1, who has been following up the case, since her friend went missing.
“The killed my friend and they buried my friend😭💔💔,” she tweeted on Sunday morning.
@UmohUduak1 had earlier pleaded for help over the recovery of her missing friend who had gone job-hunting on the outskirts of Uyo.
An hashtag, #FindHinyHumoren, was created to this effect on Twitter.
Umoren, a fresh graduate of the University of Uyo had dropped a tweet on her handle on Tuesday seeking a job and had got many replies in that regard.
“#AkwaIbomTwitter please I’m really in need of a job, something to do to keep mind and soul together while contributing dutifully to the organisation. My location is Uyo, I’m creative, really good at thinking critically and most importantly a fast learner. CV available on request,” she wrote.
She was allegedly invited by a young man, Frank Ezekiel Akpan, suspected to have kidnapped her as calls to her telephone lines are not connecting.
@UmohUduak1 explained that her friend had gone for an interview at Airport Road, Uyo and while trying to call her friend, heard some screams which raised her suspicion.
In separate tweets, @UmohUduak explained, “Y’all my friend @HinyHumoren is in trouble and she needs our help. I’m currently in Lagos and I can’t help than to put this out there. Earlier today, she told me she was going for a job interview at airport road which is quite far from her house.
“To cut everything short, she sent me a 1-second audio record on WhatsApp and I had to call her back to know if she wanted to say something to me but immediately I called her. I heard her screaming. Someone, please help her out.
“This was our last chat before she left for the interview. It was immediately I got this 1-second voice note from her that I called her and she has not been taking my calls. Y’all help me out.”
Many Nigerians had trended the hashtag and some volunteered to help in tracking the location, phone numbers and other details of the suspects.
The suspects in the case have been arrested by the police. The prime suspect, Ezekiel Frank Akpan was picked up. His father and some other accomplices had been arrested earlier.
Akpan, on Friday, had taken to his Facebook page to debunk the allegation without further proof of his innocence.
He also denied having met the young lady when picked up by the police but according to @UmohUduak_1, the prime suspect has confessed to have raped and killed Umoren.
Following the pressure mounted by Nigerians on social media, he could no longer stay at Oron and ran to Uruan.
The chairman of Uruan Local Government Area was said to have met the suspect’s cousin and requested that the suspect be brought to him.
The suspect reportedly confessed to the Chairman who handed him over to the police.
Nigerians on Twitter are lamenting the death of Umoren:
