Mr. Frank Akpan, the father to the serial killer, Uduak Frank Akpan has expressed shock over his son’s involvement in crime.
Mr. Frank Akpan while addressing the media said that he brought up his children in a righteous way and can not believe that his son will be involved in murder.
Uduak Akpan gruesomely killed Iniobong Umoren after luring her to come for a supposed job interview. While being paraded yesterday, he confessed to the crime but said that he killed her out of self defence.
Addressing newsmen, his father said that he should face the full wrath of the law for murder.
“The Police stormed my house in search of Uduak but didn’t see him. I was invited to come and answer some questions at the police station and when I got to the station, I was asked to call him.
“When he came back to Akwa Ibom, I was allowed to interact with him and that was when he told me that he committed an offense.
“I was disappointed, I scolded him and asked why he committed such a crime knowing fully well he has two sisters that are equally students and are both in school.
“I felt bad because I know they are women too and I wouldn’t want such fate to befall them too,” he said.
He further revealed that he wasn’t at home when his son carried out the heinous crime.
Frank who also refuted claims that the house was an abandoned building where his son carries out his evil deeds said he and his family were full occupants 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 added.
