Atiku took to his Twitter page to send his condolences to the victim’s family as he urged the police to do everything that will sustain justice and make it prevail.
Over the past two days, I saw how Iniubong Umoren united Nigerians in a way that was admirable, yet, tragic. This is heart-rending.
“I call on the Nigeria Police and other security agencies to do all within their powers to ensure that justice prevails for her family and all Nigerians. They made great efforts to #FindHinnyHumoren.
“May God grant her family and friends the fortitude to bear the loss of such a young Nigerian who only sought an honest living.”
