Ahmed Gulak, former aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has reportedly been killed by gunmen in Imo state.
It was gathered that the former aide was killed while returning to Abuja from Owerri, the Imo state capital.
According to a statement released by the Imo state Police command, “on the 30/5/2021, at about 07:20hrs, armed bandits intercepted and attacked a Toyota Camry cab carrying Ahmed Gulak and two others who were on their way to Sam Mbakwe Airport to catch a flight.”
The statement added that “Ahmed Gulak left his room at Protea Hotel without informing the Police nor sister agencies in view of the fragile security situation in the South East and Imo in particular.
He left without any security escorts and while the cab driver took irregular route to the airport, six armed bandits who rode in a Toyota Sienna intercepted, identified and shot at Ahmed Gulak at around Umueze Obiangwu in Ngor-Okpala Local Government Area close to the Airport.”
The Imo state Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro, has however directed a discreet investigation into the matter and also deployed Tactical and Special forces to cordon the area and arrest perpetrators.
