Women Journalists Demand Prosecution Of Umoren’s Murderers


The Akwa Ibom State Council of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists, NAWOJ, has called for the prosecution of Iniobong Umoren’s killers.

The late Iniobong was last seen on Thursday April 29, before she reportedly left for a job interview along the Airport road in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.

NAWOJ has joined millions of Nigerians, both at home and in the Diaspora to condemn in very strong terms the callous and brutal killing of Iniobong Umoren, a young innocent girl ,who was simply seeking for a honest source of livelihood.

A statement endorsed by the State Chairman of the Association, Uduak Ekong and the Secretary, Esther Effiong, frowned at the heinous crime, describing it as the height of wickedness against a fellow human being.

The statement called on the Nigeria Police and other security agencies to pull resources together and do everything within their power to ensure that the full weight of the law is meted out on the perpetrators of the heinous crime and all those who played whatever role in the death of the young girl.

The Association also reminded security agencies to treat the murder case with kid- glove and ensure that justice prevails not just for her family but for all Nigerians who have been enraged, saddened and touched by the wicked act.

The statement further prayed for the repose of the soul of young Iniobong and strength for the family to bear the huge loss while advising young Nigerians to be wary of suspicious job opportunities and individuals or groups who hide under the pretext of providing job opportunities to lure young Nigerians to their untimely deaths.
