The convict was sentenced to death by hanging and life imprisonment on the two charges of murder and rape preferred against him.

However, the court discharged and acquitted his father, Frank Akpan and sister, Anwan Bassey (2nd and 3rd accused) who were standing trial for accessory after the fact to murder.

Akpan’s journey to the Gallows began after he lured a Job-seeker, Iniubong Umoren out of her home with a fake job interview, raped and killed her in April 2021 in the outskirts of Uyo.
