The former Special Adviser (Politics) to President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak, has been killed by unknown gunmen in Owerri, Imo state.

It was gathered that Gulak was killed at Obiangwu along Aba-Owerri road on his way to the airport apparently to board a flight to Abuja on Sunday morning.

A Facebook post by one of his friends, Umar Ardo, read: “I just confirmed the sad and gruesome death of my friend and classmate, the former Hon. Speaker of the Adamawa State Assembly, former Special Assistant Political to President Goodluck Jonathan, Barr Ahmed Ali Gulak was said to have been killed last night by unknown gunmen in Owerri, Imo State.”

A statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state command, SP Bala Elkana, confirmed Gulak’s killing, adding that the security agency would probe the incident.

“On the 30/5/2021, at about 07:20 am 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.

“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 cordon the area and arrest perpetrators,” the statement said.
