The Akwa Ibom State Police Command has concluded plans to parade Uduak Frank Akpan, the suspected killer of a job seeker in the state, Iniubong Umoren, on Friday.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Odiko Macdon, disclosed that the reason behind the move was to dismiss rumour of the death of the suspected killer in police custody.

He further lamented that the people are frustrating police’s efforts, adding that it is not possible for the police to allow a suspect to commit suicide in detention.

He said, “How can we allow him to commit suicide? How can he hang himself by tying his trousers to the metal frame of his cell door? How?”
