Good People, as we discuss here on the promises of tomorrow, let us remember the family of this young woman who was brutally taken away from this earth, after she answered a call for a “job”, and attended what turned out to be a fake interview. To the family of Iniobong Umoren, a Philosophy graduate of the University of Uyo, may the good Lord grant strength to bear the loss.
Without passing blame on this unfortunate incident, why can’t Nigeria have a database of these criminals? From the news update, the killer Uduak Akpan is a known “serial” rapist. Building this database does not require Aso Rock or a state capital as a local government area chairman can make it happen. Why do we have LGA chairmen?
We need to upgrade our playbooks in Nigeria to avoid failing our citizens. Ini is gone because her country failed her, by allowing a known criminal to freely operate in the community!
RIP Ini; strength to the family.---
