He recently revealed this during a condolence visit to late Umoren’s family yesterday in Oruk Anam local government area.
According to him, the state government will not interfere with police investigations and he is confident that the police will ensure justice prevails.
Udom added that he is pained with the gruesome manner in which the innocent girl went out in search of a responsible means of livelihood and met her untimely death.
His words, “She decided to look for a job to make a living, to cater for her needs before leaving for the mandatory National service. I appeal to the state government to ensure that justice takes its course, by bringing all the perpetrators to book.”
The father of the deceased added, “I thank His Excellency the Governor for taking a personal interest in this case and I appeal that the family should not be abandoned.”
