Uduak Akpan, a suspect involved in the murder of Iniubong Umoren, the Akwa Ibom job seeker who was lured out of her home with a fake job interview, has pleaded guilty to the offence.
Akpan was arraigned alongside his father before a State High Court judge in Uyo.
He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge of rape.
Umoren was raped and killed in April in the outskirts of Uyo by Akpan who the police in Akwa Ibom State described as a serial rapist.
Her remains were buried in a shallow grave in Akpan’s family house where the crime took place.
Umoren was later buried on Friday at her hometown, Nung Ita, Ikot Essien in Oruk Anam Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
The case is being prosecuted by the Akwa Ibom State Government.
