Gulak Was Warned Against Going To Owerri But He Said ‘We Are All Nigerians’

Ahmed Gulak, the murdered chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (), was advised against going to , state capital, for the public hearing on constitution review, TheCable report.


It’s understood that despite being warned against the trip, Gulak insisted, noting that “we are all ”.


Gulak was the lead consultant on the public hearing in , the host for and states.


“Nobody was interested in being deployed to but Gulak offered to go. He was initially meant to go to but he decided against it when it appeared no one was keen on going to ,” an insider said.


“We prevailed on him not to go, but he was hellbent on carrying out the assignment, despite the fact that consultants from the -east turned down the assignment.”


Gulak was shot dead by on Sunday while returning to from .


According to the , he left his hotel for the airport without any security personnel, after which six “armed bandits” ambushed his car at Umueze Obiangwu in Ngor-Okpala LGA and shot him.


Bala Elkana, state spokesperson, had said the perpetrators are members of Indigenous of Biafra (IPOB) and Eastern Security (ESN) — an IPOB security outfit.


Elkana said the intelligence response team (IRT), mobile force, and tactical units from the command trailed and killed the attackers.


IPOB has since denied the allegation and challenged the to set up an independent panel of inquiry to investigate the incident.

“We, therefore, state without equivocations that IPOB knows nothing about the said assassination. In the first place, what threat did the late Gulak constitute to our cause to warrant his elimination? We had nothing in common with him and could not have in any way killed him,” Emma Powerful, IPOB spokesman, had said.




The public hearing on constitution review was not the first high-profile assignment Gulak would be undertaking in state.


He was the chairman of the electoral committee for the gubernatorial election in 2018. Uzodimma and Uche Nwosu — the anointed candidate of , former governor — were the main competitors at the primary.


Nwosu had been announced the winner before the party’s national working committee (NWC) cancelled the and Uzodinma was recognised as the candidate.


Gulak was declared missing during the primary but he later came out to say he was “kidnapped” and that he was offered a $2 million bribe by an unnamed person to influence the outcome of the .


He had also alleged that Okorocha forced members of the electoral panel to declare Nwosu as the winner of the primary election.




Gulak’s death has, on one hand, been linked to the insecurity in the -east, while some have described it as a political assassination.


“Someone must have trailed him from the hotel to the airport. That is exactly why his gruesome murder appears to be a clear case of political assassination,” he had said.

asked Uzodimma to allow security operatives to conclude their investigation before attributing the murder to politicians.


He also wondered why Gulak would come to the -east “incognito”, given the security situation.


“I mean, one will ask questions, knowing today the security situation in and even the one in the -east and not to talk of in state. We all know what is going on in state,” said.


It’s understood that Gulak, while putting himself up for the responsibility, had said “little challenges should not work against our progress”.
