… As IPOB Denies Involvement
President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed outrage and disgust over what he called “the heinous murder of Adamawa politician Ahmed Gulak in Owerri, Imo State by yet to be identified gunmen.”
This was contained in a statement signed by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity while reacting to the development on Sunday.
The President said: “I’m repulsed by such premeditated and gruesome murder of Gulak by evil people who are determined to undermine the peace, unity and territorial integrity of our country.

“Let me warn however that nobody or group of people who engages in such despicable acts should expect to go free. We will deploy all resources at our disposal to ensure that such callous and criminal elements are brought to justice.”
President Buhari expressed his “deep condolences to the family of the deceased, the people and government of Adamawa State as well as his friends and associates all over the country.
Meanwhile, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to the death of Ahmed Gulak, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former aide of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan.
IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, fingered Governor Hope Uzodinma, describing Gulak’s death as a “professional assassination.”
Powerful insisted that members of the group were not responsible for Gulak’s murder which occurred on Sunday morning, May 30th.
The statement was in reaction to the allegation by the Nigerian intelligence community which accused IPOB members of killing Gulak in Imo State.
Powerful described the claims by the Nigeria Intelligence community as unprofessional. He, however, charged the state Governor, Hope Uzodinma, to disclose how Gulak died.
According to Powerful: “The Nigeria intelligence community has shown how unprofessional they are, today is not sit-at-home.
“People are going to church and this was why he shifted the date to tomorrow. This is political assassination; we are not in the same party as Gulak.
“Uzodinma and APC know about Gulaks death, we do not know anything about his movement, talk more of him being in the state. Nigerians believe this because they hate IPOB, Biafra.”
