Nigerians have been expressing their anger and anguish on social media over the gruesome murder of Iniobong Umoren, a job seeker in Uyo, Akwa-Ibom State capital.
Ms. Umoren, who had earlier shared on social media her need for a job, was declared missing after setting out to meet one Uduak Akpan for a job interview.
The police in Akwa Ibom State, on Sunday, confirmed that she was raped, killed and buried in a shallow grave by Mr. Akpan.
The police spokesperson in Akwa Ibom State, Odiko MacDon, identified the suspect as a 20-year-old serial rapist.
But Nigerians on social media, who have keenly followed the turn of events, have called for justice, using the hashtag #JusticeForHinyUmoren.

Hiny Umoren just wanted to be employed. She just needed a decent job to fend for herself and family. But the wickedness in the heart of man had another plan for her. They deceived her with a non-existing job offer and killed her. 😩#JusticeForHinyUmoren

A bloodline of wickedness and evil. The Uduak family actually killed her.
I wish Ini Umoren can get justice today 💔 you spend 4years in school, finish and then get killed looking for a job 💔

All she wanted was a Job to keep her mind and soul together.
She didn’t deserve to be killed. One thing is sure Uduak will never go unpunished.
You and everything you have is better dead than alive.

So sad about this…it’s heartbreaking 💔💔💔
I really hoped she’d be found alive so she’d know how amazing a friend you are but this is surely a black Sunday. Words can’t comfort you but God does. May she rest in power.
We demand #JusticeForHinyUmoren

Hi twitter users, please let us use the same energy we used for #EndSARS to dig deep into this case. Let’s uncover these people & their evil deeds. They’ve been doing these for a long time. It’s like a family business. #FindHinyUmoren #JusticeforHinyUmoren pic.twitter.com/9LlhhR9r0M
