'Killing Of Gulak Is Devastating, But The Killers Won't Escape Justice' - Uzodinma Vows


From Emeka Ugochukwu, Owerri 

Grieving Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, has said that the killing of Ahmed Gulak was one of the  most devastating news that had ever hit him, vowing that his killers won’t escape punishment.

Gulak, a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan and until his gruesome  murder,  a chieftain of the 
All Progressives Congress(APC), was killed on Sunday in Owerri, the state capital while on his way to the Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport.

Speaking at a media briefing on Monday, Uzodinma said he was shocked and yet  to recover from it. 

The Governor assured that the security agencies would leave nothing untouched in order to find those behind the killing.

“I was shocked to my marrows when the sad news of his callous murder was broken to me. I was getting ready to go to church when the sad news came and I could not attend the service again. It was simply one of the most devastating news I have had in my life and I am yet to recover from the shock.

“Alhaji Ahmed Gulak was in Imo State for a national assignment. He came to Owerri with the Senate Committee on Constitutional Amendment. Being a humble man, he chose to travel incognito according to his friend who was with him.

“Someone must have trailed him from the hotel to the airport. That is exactly why his gruesome murder appears to be a clear case of political assassination.

“According to reports by the police, he was shot in cold blood and the assailants did not remove a pin from him. It is most benumbing that people chose to waste such innocent blood in such a dastardly and cowardly manner.

“Let me make it very clear that everything will be done by security agencies to find those who murdered Gulak and their sponsors. They will not by the grace of God escape their deserved punishment.

“This is not in our character as Ibos, not in our tradition nor in our culture. We must condemn this callous act.”
