The Akwa Ibom State Police Command has said it is ready to prosecute Uduak Akpan, the murder suspect who raped and killed job seeker, Miss Iniubong Umoren.

The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Odiko Macdon, said on Monday in Uyo that with the autopsy result of the deceased, the police has what it takes to prosecute the murderer.

While denying claims that the case had been taken over by the Department of State Security, Macdon stated that only the police was empowered by law to handle such cases.

He explained that Akpan alongside the soldier who murdered one Enobong Jimmy, and the Church Founder, Ukachukwu Christopher who beat his wife to death had been officially remanded in the Nigeria Correctional Service and would be arraigned in court soon.
