The All Progressive Congress, APC, in Imo State has described the murder of former Political Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak, as unconscionable and despicable
Gulak was assassinated by unknown gunmen on Sunday on his way to Sam Mbakwe Airport to catch a flight to Abuja.
In a statement signed by the State Party Chairman, Prince Marcellinus Nlemigbo, the party said the act is “a provocative affront to the generality of Nde Imo, as our people are not known to be this unmindful, callous, barbaric and heartless”
Part of the statement read “ Gulak’s death, certainly, is a huge loss to APC as a party, his family, close friends and Nigeria as a country. Almost in a remarkable and apparent contradiction, as Imo State is not a hostile ground to visitors – we are receptive, loving, caring and accommodating.
“In line with the foregoing, we call on all relevant security agencies to leave no stone unturned in ensuring that all those involved in this heinous and dastard act are brought to book no matter how highly placed.
“While we sincerely condole and appeal the national leadership of APC, the presidency, the people and governwent of Adamawa State to bear this great loss with equanimity, we commend the effort of the state government to arrest the urgly trend of incidences of insecurity in the state.
“The party further calls on Imolites to join hands with the state government and security agencies to restore the usual peace and security of our dear state, Imo.
“We pray for the peaceful repose of the soul of Alhaji Ahmed Gulak and other faithful departed.
