A socio-cultural group in Akwa Ibom State, Ati Annang Foundation has appointed the former Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General, Uwemedimo Nwoko SAN to led legal team in the trial of Uduak Akpan on the murder of Iniubong Umoren.
The group demanded for up-to-date briefings of the case in court to ensure that justice is served and anyone found culpable face the full wrath of the law.
In a letter signed by the President of the group and Leader, Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Udo Keirian Akpan, addressed to the legal Luminary, the group seek for full representation in all aspects and levels of the case.
The letter reads in part;
“You are to lead a Team of not less than Ten (10) Lawyers, including the International Legal Adviser of Ati Annang Foundation to represent the Foundation in the above referred case. The Foundation requests full representation in all aspects and levels of the case, including the activities at the State Police Headquarters and other related Police Stations, to when the charges are filed in the court and thereafter.
“We are trusting that while you will work to ensure justice is served, the Foundation will be briefed after at each step involved.
It will be recalled that Uduak Akpan had confessed to have killed Iniubong Umoren on self defence when paraded at Akwa Ibom State Police Headquarters, Ikot Akpan Abia.
Late Iniubong Umoren was buried at her country home in Oruk Anam local government area amidst tears from friends and sympathizers.
With this development, all hope is not lost in the murder of Iniubong Umoren by a serial rapist and murderer, as pundits have already concluded that the case died the day the innocent girl was buried.
