The Imo State Police Command has paraded the suspected killers of Ahmed Gulak, the former Special Adviser on Politics to former President, Goodluck Jonathan. Gulak was killed in May 2021 by unknown gunmen in Owerri, Imo State. The police subsequently announced the arrest of some suspects allegedly involved in the dastardly act.One of the suspects on Monday, Anosike Chimobi, confessed to committing the crime during a parade at the Imo State Police headquarters.
The State Police boss, Mike Abattam, said Chimobi had been on the radar of the command since the killing of Gulak. According to Abattam, the suspect had escaped during a gun duel between police personnel and the criminal gang at Aboh Mbaise shortly after they murdered Gulak.
However, he said five of the suspects were killed. Meanwhile, Chimobi, who claimed to be a commercial bus driver, denied being a part of the criminal gang.
According to him, Gulak’s killers approached him to convey them in his vehicle to a spot but he resisted. He, however, said he later succumbed as they threatened to kill him. He admitted to driving the criminals to the spot and blocked Gulak’s vehicle which was on its way to the airport.
Chimaobi said the criminals shot at Gulak after the All Progressives Congress Chieftain resisted the demand by the gunmen to alight from the vehicle. According to Chimobi, the hoodlums later ran into a team of security operatives who shot repeatedly at the other vehicle conveying them until it somersaulted and caught fire.
