A CAR BEING DUG OUT OF A RIVERSIDE IN OBI LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF NASARAWA STATE LAST WEEKEND.

TUNDE BANWO — WERE KILLED BY PEOPLE SUSPECTED TO BE MEMBERS OF THE OMBATSE GROUP AND BURIED WITH THEIR CAR. (THE NATION)

Three bodies belonging to two bankers and their driver have been dug up from a riverside in Nasarawa State, centre of violent clashes between Alago and Eggon youths in recent times.

The deceased were allegedly ambushed by suspected Ombatse cultists, who took them to the bush, killed and then set their bodies ablaze with their car before burying them inside the car by the riverside.

The incident reportedly happened at Tudun Adabu in Obi Local Government.

Already, 14 suspects have been arrested by the Nasarawa Police Command in connection with the murder.

The deceased bankers were identified as Alhaji Hassan Gidado, who was the managing director of the Police Microfinance Bank, and Mr. Tunde Banwo.

The state Commissioner of Police, Umar Shehu, who made this known at a news conference on Monday in Lafia, the state capital, said after the bodies were exhumed, they were deposited at the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital in Lafia.

The bankers, who lived in Abuja, were in Lafia for the wedding of a child of the police commissioner-in-charge of Cooperatives when they met their untimely death.

Mr. Shehu said the suspected killers would soon be charged to court just as he assured residents that measures had been taken to curb the activities of the outlawed Ombatse group.

It would be recalled that the group was responsible for the massacre of more than 60 security operatives some few months ago and in similar fashion with the recent incident, set the bodies of the security officers ablaze.
