Frank Akpan, the father of Uduak Akpan, the perpetrator in the killing of an innocent job seeker in Akwa State, Iniubong Umoren, has stated that his son should face the full wrath of the law.
Uduak admitted on Friday that he killed the deceased by striking her with a stabiliser.
The defendant confessed to luring the deceased with a phoney work career plan, noting that he had used similar schemes on six other girls.
Frank has now denied allegations that the house was an unfinished structure where his son committed his bad deeds, claiming that he and his family were absolute tenants of the house.
“The fact that the house is always locked and abandoned is not true because we have a bore hole in there and all the residents around there come to fetch water from our compound.
“Its just unfortunate that this had to happen. I never knew that this is what he does and I’m not in any way involved in this particular act.
“I was never aware of his previous acts because I haven’t fully been with them. We just relocated from Abuja and I also retired because I’m a government worker. I haven’t been around for close to 30 years now.
“I’m not happy about what my child has done. I don’t even believe this can happen to me after all the years of toiling to send them to school and ensure they get the best. It depends on the system and if they say the penalty for his crime is death, then he should face the full wrath of the law,” he said.
