“Until his life was taken away, Kubiat was awaiting mobilization for service by the National Youth Service Corps.
Speaking on his involvement into the case, Inibehe said they have met with the Deputy Commissioner Of Police in the Akwa Ibom and other officers in the state CID and investigation is ongoing.
“I met with the Deputy Commissioner of Police and other officers at the State CID, Akw Ibom State Police Command, Ikot Akpan Abia, Uyo on Wednesday, September 1, 2021 in company of my colleague, Augustine Asuquo and some members of the deceased family.
“We are currently working with the police to ensure that justice is done.
“I deliberately refrained from making public comments on the case before now because the aged parents of the deceased needed to be informed of this very tragic development.
“They were only informed on Thursday about the murder of their only son.
“This is all that I want to say at this time. Investigation is ongoing. I will make additional public statements in due course as the need arises.
