Jonathan Reacts To Death Of Former Aide, Gulak

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has condemned the killing of his former Special Adviser on Political Matters, Ahmed Gulak, by unknown gunmen in Imo State.

Naija News reports that Gulak was shot dead by unknown gunmen in Owerri, Imo State on Sunday while he was on his way to Abuja from Owerri.

The gunmen intercepted and attacked a Toyota Camry cab carrying the politician and two others at Umueze Obiangwu in Ngor-Okpala Local Government Area close to the Airport who were on their way to Sam Mbakwe Airport to catch a flight.

Reacting to the sad news in a statement on Sunday by his media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, the former president expressed shock over the death of his former aide.

He, however, praised the deceased as a “loyal public servant”, and urged the security agents to fish out his killers and bring them to justice.

He said: “I received with shock the death of Alh Ahmed Gulak who died on Sunday, May 30, 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.”

The former President also offered commiserations to the family and loved ones of the deceased.

“My 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.
