He was murdered alongside the Abuja branch manager of the same bank, Tunde Banwo and their driver Aliyu Adamu penultimate week, while they were returning to Abuja from a wedding ceremony in the neighbouring Keana town.
The state police commissioner Umar Shehu had said three days ago that the police arrested 14 persons in connection with the murder of the bank chief and the others and had exhumed their bodies from a shallow grave near a river in Tudun Adabu.
The command spokesman, Cornelius Ocholi confirmed the arrests but did not give details.
He told Daily Trust that already bodies of the slain persons have been collected by their families for burial.
Meanwhile the panel investigating the May 7 murder of scores of security operatives in Alakyo in Nasarawa State has heard that young men of Eggon extraction believed to be members of the outlawed Ombatse group graced the occasion of the swearing in of Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura on May 29, 2011, in Lafia.
This revelation was made by both the lawyer representing the Gwandara people of Iggah as well as Senator Solomon Ewuga (APC, Nasarawa-North) who was summoned to give evidence on Tuesday.
The lawyer, Mohammed Elegu Usman, who took on the senator in a cross examination informed him that a previous commission of inquiry headed by retired Justice Isa Ramalan had also heard Ewuga in evidence of the commission that investigated the June, 2012 mayhem in Assakio, a town populated by Alago and Eggon people.
The counsel reminded the senator that he (Ewuga) gave evidence on record that he saw Ombatse members graced the occasion of the swearing in of Governor Al-Makura at the township stadium in Lafia, on May 29, 2011, with attires carrying the inscription “Ombatse.”
“You told the commission on record that you saw Eggon youths with shirts written Ombatse on the very day of swearing in of Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura in the stadium,” the lawyer said with Ewuga answering in the affirmative.
Usman reminded Ewuga of his role during the swearing in ceremony, saying “immediately you saw that, you called those young men and cautioned them and asked them to get out of that place. It is on record.” This too, the senator answered in the affirmative.
