Unknown Gunmen kill man who robbed Okorocha and his son-in-law of APC ticket

A former Special Adviser Political to President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak, who oversaw the Imo All Progressives Congress APC primaries, that produced Senator Hope Uzodinma as the party’s flag bearer, has been reportedly murdered by gunmen in Owerri Imo State.

Dr Umar Ado, a classmate to Gulak, broke the news to the media, through a statement on today, obtained by Maazi Online.

Gulak’s reason of being in the state is not very clear, but available information believe, that he was in Imo State on the invitation of some Northern Groups in Imo state.

Gulak was the former Hon. Speaker of the Adamawa State House of Assembly, before he became a Senior Special Assistant to the former Nigerian Vice President Goodluck Jonathan, and later former Special Adviser Political to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Gulak was reportedly killed last night by unknown gunmen in Owerri, the capital of Imo State.

Gulak, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, was instrumental to the emergence of Senator Hope Uzodinma, as the Governorship Candidate of the party in the state, even though the position is still being contested in court by Philip Umeadi SAN.

In a video that was widely circulated, the former governor of Imo State, and Senator representing Orlu zone, Senator Rochas Okorocha, was seen at the residence of Senator Osita Izunaso, who was the former National Organising Secretary of the APC, in the company of security operatives, demanding the whereabouts of Gulak, who was accused of making away with the result of the primaries, and later declared Uzodinma the winner of the primaries.

Uzodinma would later admit that he became Governorship Candidate of the party, through the Ben Johnson Way, which was probably perfected by Gulak.

Gulak had alleged that he turned down a $2 million bribe from Okorocha, to swing the primaries in the favour of Uche Nwosu his son-in-law.

In a swift reaction, Nnamdi Kanu have disowned the killing of Gulak, stating that it was possibly political assassination.

The state government have not yet reacted to the news of Gulak’s killing.
