Ahmed Gulak

The Imo State Police Command has confirmed that Ahmed Gulak, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was killed by bandits.

SP Bala Elkana, the Police Public Relations Officer, said Gulak was killed by the armed bandits who intercepted his vehicle on his way to the airport on Sunday.

Elkana, in a statement, disclosed that the former adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari left his hotel room without informing any security agent of his movement.

According to Elkana: “On the 30/5/2021, 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.

“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 the 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.

“CP Abutu Yaro FDC has directed a discreet investigation into the matter as Tactical and Special forces have been deployed to cordon off the area and arrest perpetrators.”

Following Gulak’s death, the Nigerian intelligence community accused the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) of being responsible for the killing.

However, the group refuted the allegation.
