President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to ensure those behind the ‘gruesome’ murder of All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain Ahmed Gulak are brought to book.
The President stated this in a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, titled, ‘President Buhari expresses outrage, sadness over Gulak’s murder’.
He said the President 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.”
Shehu quoted the President saying: “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.”
Finally, 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.
Also reacting, ex President Goodluck Jonathan expressed shock over the murder of Ahmed Gulak who was his former special adviser on politics.
In a statement by Ikechukwu Eze, his Special Adviser on Media, Jonathan said “I received with shock the death of Alhaji Ahmed Gulak who died on Sunday, 30th May 2021, in Owerri, Imo State.
“Gulak was a loyal public servant and dedicated patriot who gave his all in service to his country. His death is a painful loss to me and many others who worked and interacted with him.
“He will be remembered for his modest contributions to the growth of our nation’s democracy, especially his memorable days both as a skillful speaker of Adamawa State House of Assembly and political adviser in our administration.“
Jonathan expressed his deepest condolences to his family, the government and the people of Adamawa state, who are bound to feel the loss of this eminent and patriotic Nigerian.
“May God grant his family, friends and supporters solace, even as I appeal for calm while law enforcement bodies carry out their investigations,” he said.
