Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma said those who killed former assistant to Goodluck Jonathan Ahmed Gulak would not escape punishment.
On the way to Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport on Sunday Gulak was killed in Owerri, the state capital.
Uzodinma said in a Monday press briefing that he was devastated by news of Gulak’s death.
The governor has assured that all the security agencies will do to find the people behind the assassination.
“When the sad news of his callous killing broke me, I was shocked at my marrows.
When the sad news came and I couldn’t attend the service again, I was ready to go to church.
It was just one of the worst news in my life and I have not yet recovered from the shock,” he said.
“The national assignment of Alhaji Ahmed Gulak is located in Imo State.
He arrived in Owerri with the Constitutional Amendment Committee in the Senate.
As a humble guy, according to his friend who was with him, he chose to travel incognito.
“Someone must have brought him to the airport from the hotel.
That is precisely why his horrific homicide seems to be a clear case of political murder.
“According to police reports, he was shot in cold blood and he was not picked off by the assailants.
It is most embarrassing that people have chosen so ruthlessly and cowardly to waste such innocent blood.
“Let me make it very clear that all security agencies will do to find those who killed Gulak and their sponsors.
You will not escape your worthy punishment through the grace of God.
“It’s not our ibos, not our tradition or our culture. This is our character.
This callous act must be condemned.”
