Uduak Frank Akpan, the alleged killer of a job seeker, Inibong Umoren has claimed he killed her in self-defence.
Akpan made the claim on Friday when the Akwa Ibom State Police Command paraded him.
The state Police Commissioner, Andrew Amiengheme, said the suspect was paraded to quell the rumour that he had committed suicide in police custody.
The suspect, while answering questions from reporters disclosed that he invited Umoren over for a fake job and then demanded to have sex with her.
She agreed to his demand, he said, but became furious which made her hit him on the head with a stabiliser, which he in turn used on her before she died.
Uduak said, “I asked her whether she can work on a farm as a secretary, she said she can and that she’s ready to do the job. So, when she came, I revealed to her that this farm doesn’t exist and that it was just a hoax.
“I told her that before she leaves that I’ll like to have sex with her, and she agreed. But she gave a condition that I should use a condom, which I did. When I removed the condom, she became furious, so she took the nearby stabiliser to hit me on my head. Then she bit my left ring finger.
“In a bid to stop her, I used the stabiliser to hit her and she fell and started bleeding, thereafter she died.”
When asked to state the number of people he has killed, he said Umoren is the only one but about six other women have fallen victim to his antics.
Meanwhile, Umoren was laid to rest today in Akwa Ibom amid tears.
