A car with the remains of three men was dug out (pictured above) of a riverside bush in Obi LGA of Nasarawa State last weekend. The men have been identified as the Managing Director of Police Microfinance Bank, Alhaji Hassan Gidado, the manager of the bank’s Abuja branch, Mr. Tunde Banwo, and a company driver.
The men were killed by people suspected to be members of the Ombatse group, who allegedly ambushed them, took them to the bush, killed them in their car, set the car ablaze and buried them with their car in the bush. The incident happened at Tudun Adabu in Obi Local Government.
The police at a news conference on Monday said the corpses have been deposited at the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital in Lafia and that 14 people have so far been arrested in connection with the murder
The victims were said to have gone to Lafia from their base in Abuja to attend a wedding when they were sadly attacked and brutally killed. Is this what we have turned to? Human beings behaving like animals? No value for human life? Lord, help us!
