Last week the nation was shocked by a series of murders. One of them is the brutal murder of Ambank staff Norazita Abu Talib by Ardi Hamzah. This is how his Facebook page looks like.
If you missed the news, an Ambank staff at Subang in the state of Selangor, Malaysia was brutally killed by the bank’s security guard using a pump gun. The late Norazita was killed when shot in the head while she and her colleague was opening a safe at Ambank’s branch at Jalan USJ Sentral 2. After killing the victim, he took a large amount of cash from the safe and has gone missing since. A CCTV footage of the murder is widely circulated over the internet.
Based on his identification card, his registered address is in Tawau, Sabah but investigation shows that this address is non-existent and the ID is fake.
I’m not an investigator, but his Facebook reveals some disturbing facts about him:
- His real name or nickname is probably Ardi Ode Putra Katela and most likely is from Indonesia.
- About 7 months ago, he checked-in at Stadium Gelora Bung Karno in Jakarta, Indonesia.
- The last Facebook status was “Jum Blik kampung kita….” which means “let’s go back to my homeland….” Was this planned all along?
- He has worked at DHL before, also probably as a security guard.
- He loves to show off photos of cash which he stated that it was his salary.
- He was probably planning to use the stolen money for his house renovation in Indonesia based on the photos of house plans in his Facebook.
- A lot of the Facebook comments were written in his local Indonesian dialect (any idea what?).
- He often goes to a gym, and his friends there can probably help the police to locate him?
- He seems to have a lot of friends from Haluoleo University which is located in Sulawesi Indonesia.
I’m sure every Malaysian is hoping that he will be captured soon. The best way to help is to share this information as much as possible with your friends on Facebook or Twitter.
