The Akwa Ibom State Police Command has arrested two suspects connected with the disappearance of a job-seeker, known as Hiny Humoren.
Naija News reports that this was made known by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Odiko Macdon, on Friday night.
“The Police Anti-Kidnapping Squad of Akwa Ibom State Command is already investigating this case. As a matter of fact, two suspects have been arrested. Further updates will be provided as the investigation progresses,” he told The Punch.
Recall that Humoren had gone missing on Thursday while attending a job interview in Akwa Ibom. She had earlier tweeted via her handle, @HinyHumoren, that she needed a job and some persons had suggested prospective employers to her.
“#AkwaIbomTwitter please I’m really in need of a job, something to do to keep mind and soul together while contributing dutifully to the organisation. My location is Uyo, I’m creative, really good in thinking ctitically and most importantly a fast learner. CV available on request,” she had tweeted on Tuesday.
But a tweep, @UmohUduak1, who identified as the job-seeker’s friend raised the alarm on Thursday that her friend was nowhere to be found.
“Y’all my friend is in trouble and she needs our help. I’m currently in Lagos and I can’t help than to put this out there.
“Earlier today she told me she was going for a job interview at airport road which is quite far from her house.
“To cut everything short, she sent me a 1sec audio record on WhatsApp and I had to call her back to know if she wanted to say something to me but immediately I called her I heard her screaming. Someone, please help her out,” @UmohUduak1 tweeted.
Her cries for help attracted the Nigerian Twitter community which has since been calling on the security agencies to find the victim.
