Military intelligence has given details of how members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) gruesomely killed the former aide to ex President Goodluck Jonathan, Barrister Ahmed Gulak in Owerri, the capital of Imo State, Southeast Nigeria.
The intelligent officers said that they intercepted communication and videos where the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu had threatened death to anyone who fails to observe his sit-at-home order from May 29 to May 31, 2021.
“Why should Nigeria and the media continue to dignify IPOB by claiming that its continuous atrocities against the security services and Nigerians are executed by unknown gunmen when we have arrested their members confessing their involvements,” the officer said
This was even as Gulak’s personal friend, Umar Ardo confirmed the killing of his friend.
Ardo, who is a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa State, reacting to the murder, said that he was killed last night by IPOB militants for no just cause.
“Inna lillahi wa inna illaihi rajiuun. Allahu Akbar.
“I just confirmed the sad and gruesome death of my friend and classmate, the former Hon. Speaker of the Adamawa State House of Assembly, former Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President and former Special Adviser Political to President Goodluck Jonathan, Barr. Ahmadu Ali Gulak.
“Barr Gulak was said to have been killed last night by unknown gunmen in Owerri, Imo State.
“May Allah (SWT) forgive his sins, bless his soul and reward his good deeds with Aljannah on the Day of Resurrection. May Allah (SWT) also give all his children, relatives, friends and loved ones, the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss. And may Allah (SWT) bless us with faithful deaths when it is our turn to die. Ameen.
“Please let all and sundry accept my heartfelt sympathy over this personal painful experience even as I draw solace that he lived a good, helpful and productive life, well illustrated by the fact that he died while in service of his dear country,” Ardo said.
