House Of Reps Demand Justice For Ini Umoren

Members of the House of Representatives (reps), on Tuesday, demanded that Alkali Baba, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) take over the murder case of Miss Iniobong Umoren who was killed in Akwa Ibom after she was lured with a fake job offer.

The House urged the IGP to ensure that justice is done by taking over the investigation and prosecution of the suspects.

The resolution of the House follows a matter of urgent public importance raised by Unyime Idem representing Ukanafun/Oruk Anam the federal constituency of Akwa Ibom State.

They also mandated the IGP to ensure the protection of Umoren’s family members from harassment, intimidation, and harm.
