The Imo state Police command has confirmed the murder of the former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan Mr. Ahmed Gulak.

A statement from the Command’s Public relations officer Mr. Bala Elkana said the deceased was attacked by bandits on his way to the Imo airport to catch a flight.

According to him, Mr. Gulak left his hotel room alongside two other persons in a cab and headed to the airport without informing security agents considering the fragile security situation in the south east.

Mr. Elkana explained that the deceased who was without security escort was intercepted around seven o’clock on in the morning by six gunmen operating in a sienna bus who identified and shot him at Umueze Obiangwu in Ngor Okpala local government area of Imo state.

The release added that the Commissioner of Police Imo state command Mr. Abutu Yaro had directed a discreet investigation into the matter as tactical and Special Forces had been deployed to cordon the area and arrest perpetrators.

Late Ahmed Gulak was said to have visited Imo on an invitation by some northern groups in the state but met his sudden death a few meters away from the Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport.

The incident has heightened tension in the already charged atmosphere as the state has come under more attacks by unknown gunmen in the last three days.
