Buhari expresses rage over Gulak’s murder in Imo

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.”

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.”

The President also 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.

The police in Imo State had earlier reacted to the development, clarifying that Gulak did not inform the police of his movements and was using a back road to the airport to catch a flight to Abuja when he was murdered in the cab, in which he was travelling with two other persons.
