Gulak’s killing wicked, senseless – Akeredolu

Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has described the killing of the former Special Adviser on Political Matters in the last Administration, Ahmed Gulak as senseless and wicked.

Akeredolu who is he Chairman of the South West Governors’ Forum said the killing of the All Progressive Congress chieftain was “very shocking and disturbing.

The Governor in a statement personally signed by him in Akure, the Ondo state capital said this is one murder too many.

The statement added, “the perpetrators of this heinous act are enemies of this country. This contrivance is meant to mislead, confuse and destroy.

“It bears the unmistakable, despicable imprints of fifth columnists bent on setting the country on the path of conflagration. These criminals must not be allowed to succeed.

“The news of the death of an APC chieftain and former Special Adviser on Political Matters in the last Administration, Ahmed Gulak, in Owerri, Imo State, this morning, is very shocking and disturbing.

“The details of the tragic incident remain sketchy.  “A press statement credited to the Imo State Police Command claimed that some bandits were responsible for the gruesome murder of a man who was a visitor to the State. This is unacceptable.

“This cowardly act is calculated to instigate Nigerians against each other, particularly Northerners, against the Igbo living outside the South East.

“We must confront the enemies of the people with a view to neutralizing them.  “This is definitely not the time for political correctness. Banditry should not be allowed to subvert the legitimacy of the current Government at all levels.
