The Police have confirmed the killing of Ahmed Gulak in Imo State on Sunday morning by ‘bandits’.

The news of the politician’s death broke on Sunday morning but a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Bala Elkana, confirmed his killing, adding that the security agency would probe the incident.

The Police blamed Gulak’s driver for taking an irregular route.

In the statement, the Police also claimed Gulak left his hotel room without informing the security agencies giving the fragile security situation in the state.

“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.

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