Police: We had no information about Gulak’s movement


The Imo state police command has said that the late, Ahmed Gulak, a former aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan
did not inform the police about his movement before he was killed on Sunday in Owerri.
In a statement, spokesman of the command, Bala Elkana,
said Gulak left his hotel room in Owerri on Sunday morning to catch a flight at Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri, without informing the police despite the security situation in the state.
The statement read, “On the 30/5/2021, 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.
“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 the 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 Ngor-Okpala Local Government Area close to the Airport.
“The Commissioner of Police Imo CP Abutu Yaro, has directed a discreet investigation into the matter as Tactical and Special forces have been deployed to cordone the area and arrest perpetrators
