The remains of Iniobong Umoren were on Friday buried in her hometown, Nung Ita in Oruk Anam Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
Ms. Umoren, an orphan and 26-year-old graduate of Philosophy from the University of Uyo, was murdered while seeking employment in Uyo.
The police have arrested a suspect, Uduak Akpan, who confessed to the crime, although he claims it was in self-defense.
Ms. Umoren was also physically and sexually assaulted, the Akwa Ibom police have said.
Mr. Akpan had invited Ms. Umoren for a job interview at Airport Road, Ibiaku junction on April 29 where he apparently carried out the atrocities.
Her corpse was found 48 hours after she went missing, largely as a result of calls made on social media by her friend Uduak Umoh.
The police have described Mr. Akpan as a “confessed serial rapist”.
However journalist David Hundeyin, in an investigative report published on Tuesday, has suggested that Mr. Akpan may not have been acting alone.
