The Imo State Police Command has confirmed the killing of a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress Ahmed Gulak by unknown gunmen on Sunday.
In a press release by the Public Relation Officer, Bala Elkana, it revealed that on the morning of 30th of May, armed bandits intercepted a Toyota Camry Cab carrying Gulak and two others who were heading to Sam Mbakwe Airport to catch a flight.
“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.”
However, the Commissioner of Police Imo State, Abutu Yaro, FDC, has deployed the Tactical and Special Forces to the area while ensuring that perpetrators will be brought to the book.
Gulak was an aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan before he decamped to the APC.
