Iniubong Umoren, the job seeker, who was raped and killed in Akwa Ibom State, has been buried.
Umoren, an orphan, was buried on Friday at her hometown, Nung Ita, Ikot Essien in Oruk Anam Local Government Area of the state.
The deceased, 26, was raped and killed last month by a man, who lured her through a fake job interview on social media.
The suspect, Uduak Akpan, described as a “serial rapist”, is being detained at the police headquarters in Uyo, the state capital.
It was reported that the burial ceremony was brief, with people who attended gripped by grief.
A sister to Umoren reportedly fainted and was later resuscitated.
Students who attended the burial sang solidarity songs, demanding justice for the late rape victim.
Udo Kieran, the Akwa Ibom House of Assembly member representing Oruk Anam state constituency, and the chairman of the local government council, Kingsley Akpan, were among the dignitaries who attended the burial.
A federal lawmaker from the area, Unyime Idem, was said to have arrived after the corpse had been buried.
But he went to the graveside to pay his respects.
