The bank staff identified as Larry Ehizo gave details on what transpired and how they planned the attack on the bank.

His full statement below; 

I met Ernest in November, and we had a discussion where we used to hang out, and I said something after he complained about our services in the bank. We almost got into a serious argument, and I told him that the only thing he would do is get angry and maybe not bank again with us.

 He said he was going to hurt someone and I told him not to do that.

That the highest he can do is to do that or maybe rob the bank to make them feel bad.

I did not know he had that on record, and he used that to threaten that after some time that I must take the people that he would bring into the bank.

He threatened my family, me and even the people around me, with my girlfriend.

After that, I was afraid to go to the police because he said even if I go to the police that he had already informed his colleagues

And because he is a cultist, he said that anything I get after that I should take it.

That is when he brought them.

I still begged him, and he went as far as my family house and threatened to kill them.

He now brought them on that day that I should take them in and tell them what to do.
