Newswire Admits Error, Describes Story Binding NGO
Online newspaper Newswire has withdrawn its complaint linking the Clinical Care and Clinical Research Center of Nigeria (CCCRN), a nongovernmental organization, with the gruesome murder of a 26-year-old job seeker in Akwa Ibom state, Iniubong Umoren.
Ms. Umoren was raped and killed by Uduak Akpan, who invited her for an interview in Oron, on the outskirts of Uyo, the capital of Akwa Ibom state.
The CCCR has denied any involvement in the murder, as stated in the publication, and is demanding a rebuttal and an apology from the news organization.
However, in a report released Monday, Newswire apologized for describing the organization as a “ghost NGO” and for allegations of involvement in organ trafficking.
Bugfix: An old version of our story called Murder in Uyo: Who Killed Heenie Umoren? erroneously described the Center for Clinical Assistance and Clinical Research (CCCRN) as a “ghost NGO” and stated that Uduak Apkan, the acknowledged killer of the job seeker, Iniobong Umoren met with Kufre Effiong at CCCRN headquarters.
“This version has been contested by the CCCRN and we amended the article to remove this statement. Using GPS and cellular geolocation, the address in question was listed in the phone logs as 58, Unit G Ewet Housing Estate, which is the address of the Uyo CCCR Nigeria office. “
He also stated that the organization was mentioned because of a matching error.
“The center, located in Akwa Ibom state, provides health, protection, education, nutrition and family economic services (among other things) to more than 100,000 orphans and vulnerable children and their families,” the organization said in part in a statement.
“According to CCCRN, the Center for Clinical Assistance and Clinical Research has been operating since 2010 /” Therefore, we urge all members of the public to note that the Center for Clinical Assistance and Clinical Research (CCCRN) is a responsible non-profit organization. organization and has absolutely nothing to do with Mr. Effiong, organ trafficking, extraction.
“Our story is about the murder of Iniubong Umoren, whose alleged killer, Mr. Frank Uduak Ezekiel Akpan (Mr. Frank), was arrested by the police, aimed at exposing the people behind the murder of a job seeker, and has no intention of discrediting any group. individual or organization, “the news organization reported.
PREMIUM TIMES checks also revealed that the story has been updated to reflect the magazine’s rebuttal of the CCCRN parties.
The murder of a job seeker
Mr. Akpan, who, according to police, confessed to being a serial rapist, said he raped six women while playing the same jokes on them in the past.
Police said they will face charges in court when court officials call off the national strike, police said.
Amid public protests for justice for the deceased, Newswire released a report detailing the phone numbers of some of the people Mr. Akpan contacted prior to his arrest.
The report states that some of them may have cooperated to kill Ms Umorin, while others may have been involved in a cover-up scheme to free the suspect.
But police officer Samuel Ezeigo and a relative of Kufre Effiong’s murder suspect, whose phone numbers are listed in the report, said the calls were sent to facilitate Akpan’s arrest.
At the time of writing the report, PREMIUM TIMES could not access the recordings of the conversation between the suspect and those with whom he spoke, and therefore could not determine whether the people were guilty.
In addition to individuals, the report cites two legal entities, CCCR and the Davok Suites Hotel, as key players in the conspiracy because of their addresses.
“The first is that a subsidiary of Uyo (CCCR Nigeria) that specifically offers ‘health care supply chain management’ may have been requisitioned through illegal organ trafficking to fuel the growing global black organ trade. At the bottom of the operation will be Frank Akpan, who specializes in the rape and murder of defenseless women in order to extract their organs and then bring them in charge of the operation.
“The second possibility is more prosaic, but no less awful. Due to the complicated house numbering system in Uyo, house labeled 58, G Unit, Ewet Housing Estate also has number 58. This would be the ideal place for a politician’s confidant – say, a high-ranking government official – to rest his head while running an undercover assignment for your boss. Such a commission as the purchase of human parts for use in a ritual sacrifice ahead of the next election season, ”suggested journalist David Handeyin.
