The father of the alleged killer of Iniubong Umoren, a job seeker in Akwa Ibom, Frank Akpan, has denied allegations that his family was into killing for organ harvesting.
The 64-year-old retired civil servant, who refuted the claims during an interaction with newsmen, said he was only aware of the murder when the police invited him for interrogation.
Sources told Vanguard that the remains of Iniubong were buried without the head, further fueling insinuations that she may have been killed for ritual purpose.
According to reports, no fewer than 10 graves were uncovered at the compound where she was murdered and buried in swallow grave even as the place was strewn with children books, uniforms, and a corper’s boots.
But Akpan said he was not around when the incident occurred, bemoaning that he never believed such a dastardly act could be committed by his son.
