Imo Governor Hope Uzodinma has expressed disappointment over the homicide of Ahmed Gulak on Sunday.
The previous political adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan was on his option to the Sam Mbakwe Cargo Airport.
Uzodinma mentioned he didn’t should die the way in which he did and vowed that the perpetrators can pay.
Safety businesses have indicted the Indigenous Individuals of Biafra (IPOB) for the assassination.
In a broadcast on Monday, Uzodimma mentioned the ache of shedding an individual, the horror of holding a member of the family in last moments and the anger of somebody being so reckless that their bullet destroyed a life, are feelings no particular person ought to ever must endure.
He sympathized with the households of those that misplaced their lives by stray bullets “throughout this era”.
“The demise of this compatriot is a private loss to me as a result of he was a useful good friend and brother whose sense of justice, equity and uprightness endeared him to me. I used to be shocked to my marrows when the unhappy information of his callous homicide was damaged to me.
“I used to be on the brink of go to church when the unhappy information got here and I couldn’t attend the service once more. It was merely probably the most devastating information I’ve had in my life and I’m but to recuperate from the shock. It stays a puzzle to me why anybody would wish to homicide him on this ugly and cruel method.
“Alhaji Ahmed Gulak was in Imo State for a nationwide task. He got here to Owerri with the Senate Committee on Constitutional Modification. Being a humble man, he selected to journey incognito based on his good friend who was with him. Somebody will need to have trailed him from the lodge to the airport. That’s precisely why his ugly homicide seems to be a transparent case of political assassination.
“In line with reviews by the police, he was shot in chilly blood and the assailants didn’t take away a pin from him. It’s most benumbing that folks selected to waste such harmless blood in such a dastardly and cowardly method.
“Let me make it very clear that every thing might be performed by safety businesses to search out those that murdered Gulak and their sponsors. They won’t by the grace of God escape their deserved punishment. This isn’t in our character as Ibos, not in our custom nor in our tradition. We should condemn this callous act.”
The governor urged all people to train restraint and permit the police to proceed with their investigations.
“On our half as a authorities, we aren’t sparing any effort in making certain that the murderers of this patriot are shortly arrested and prosecuted for his or her evil deeds. Imo persons are very hospitable. The occasions of the previous few weeks don’t signify who we really are.
“I imagine that the continued police investigations will uncover the entire fact; it is not uncommon data that those that are harmless needn’t be afraid. However the responsible won’t ever go scot-free, definitely not on this instantaneous case.”
