The Imo State Police Command on Sunday confirmed the brutal killing of former Special Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr Ahmed Gulak by armed bandits.
The Commissioner of Police CP Abutu Yaro, in a statement said Gulak was attacked by six armed bandits around Umueze Obiangwu in Okpala Local Government Area of the State close to the Airport.
The statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the Command, SP Bala Elkana, dated May 30, 2021 states that at 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.
The Imo Police Command further said; “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 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 -Okpala Local Government Area close to the Airport”.
CP Yaro has therefore directed a discreet investigation into the matter just as Tactical and Special forces have been deployed to cordon the area and arrest the perpetrators.
