Recall that Musa Isiaka, Esq. the Secretary of the branch issued several statements about the efforts being made by the branch working with his immediate family and the Police to find him.
The branch worked effectively with the Nigeria Police to get to the end of their investigations. As you know, until the Police concluded their investigations, it was impossible for us as a branch to act on speculations about his death.

It is in this light that that the Chairman of the Branch, Afam O. Okeke, Esq. AICMC appointed Michael Awo Ejeh, the Publicity Secretary and Emmanuel I. Utomi, the Provost to work with the Police FCT Command throughout the process of Investigations, arrest of the kidnappers and the recovery of the remains of our late and fallen member.
