Wow, Ahmed Gulak!
I remember that guy. One of GEJ's fiercest defenders in the North then.
Surprised (or, well not so surprised for politicians) when crossed to APC few years ago.

This story of Ahmed Gulak getting shot IS HEAVY O. The insecurity is becoming more and more dangerous.
We need to address this head on.

The killings by "Ungun Known Men" over there in SE is escalating to elite. Assassinating Barrister Ahmed Gulak by whatever reason is uncalled for. This is someone who has huge popularity in Adamawa.
Imagine this happened in Kaduna, the North will be trending by now.

Ahmed Gulak, Jonathan’s ex-aide, shot dead in Owerri by unknown gunmen.
Phase 2 has already started.

A former Presidential Adviser; Ahmed Gulak, who left PDP for APC, and also chaired the APC panel that chose Hope Uzodinma, has just been assassinated in Imo state.
May his soul Rest In Peace. 🙏🏼
Insecurity can take anyone anytime, doesn’t matter your political party.

1. Death of Ahmed Gulak in Owerri Imo State, is scary. 36 States & FCT, are on fire. Jos Plateau, Benue & Southern Kaduna most especially. But Buhari will fly to Mali. A man whose house is on fire but he turns his eyes elsewhere, must be impeached. Lawan must be impeached as well

Those asking what Ahmed Gulak was doing in Owerri where he was killed – I need to understand the point of that question. He's not supposed to go there or Owerri is too unsafe for anyone to go there?

Ahmed Gulak chaired the panel that handed Hope Uzodinma @OfficialAPCNg guber ticket. He was Assembly Speaker, Prez SA, & Adviser.
That such a politically-exposed VIP was shot dead in a state his benefactor is governor and CSO underscores the level of insecurity in Imo. RIP. pic.twitter.com/B3HnqARuQE

Ahmed Gulak was killed by Nigeria soldiers but would hang it on unknown gunmen who are not after individuals. Owerri is already tensed, Gulak should have shunned visiting that state for this period. I condemn the killing of this man by Nigeria forces not unknown gunmen pic.twitter.com/rfHHckRHUq

Ahmed Gulak’s death is painful to me. No matter the circumstances of his death, it won’t augur well for Nigeria. He had a mindset that did not look down on others due to tribe or religion. People like that are needed. My condolences to his family. May God grant them fortitude

Within hours, our intelligence service was able to peg the sit-at-home order given by Nnamdi Kanu as the reason for the murder of Ahmed Gulak. Postulation, at best. But if they claim it's true, why haven't they been able to identify the people behind BH? Protecting some people?

Killing Ahmed Gulak in Owerri portends great danger.
Imo State is very small for Gov Uzodinma to be unable to secure.#BiafraRemembranceDay
