The NewDawn Newspaper has been credibly hinted that the family of drowned Nigerian banker Don Orogun – Managing Director of the Guaranty Trust or GT Bank Liberia, is demanding an autopsy on the body of the victim upon discovery on Tuesday, 26 January.
Mr. Orogun reportedly fell over from a boat on which he, his wife and daughter were riding, along with Liberian businessman, Atty. George Kailondo late Sunday afternoon along the Roberts International Airport or RIA highway.
This paper has further been hinted that the alleged corpse of Mr. Orogun was taken to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital or JFK after a joint rescue operation executed by rescuers from the Armed Forces of Liberia, Liberia Maritime Authority and community found.
Though authorities are yet to officially speak to the incident, there are claims that Atty. Kailando’s boat had no safety life-jacket for those riding with him at the time of the incident on Sunday.
Mr. Orogun’s wife and Atty. Kailando are said to be helping police with information since the incident, according to sources.
At the time of the discovery of the body, the NewDawn’s sources said there was “no movement” on the victim’s body, in response to this paper’s inquiry surrounding Mr. Orogun’s condition, particularly if he was still alive at the time of his discovery.
As concerns mounted here over the whereabouts of the missing bank official, GT Bank Liberia, which he has been heading, issued a statement on Monday, dismissing concerns that their boss may have died; GT Bank rather assured the public that search was being carried out.
Atty. Kailando, with whom Mr. Orogun was riding, was picked up by police in Monrovia to provide his account of the incident, but not much about his testimony has come out in the public. Sources told this paper that Mr. Orogun’s wife and daughter were also riding on the boat when he allegedly fell over and went missing despite alleged attempts by Atty. Kailando to rescue him.
