The police have said a former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak, did not inform them of his movement before he was killed by six bandits in Owerri, Imo State, on Sunday morning.
The Imo State Police Command said this in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Bala Elkana, shortly after the politician was murdered.
The police noted that only Gulak was killed by the bandits in a vehicle he was riding to the airport.
They said that Gulak left his hotel room in Owerri on Sunday morning to catch a flight at Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport, Owerri, without informing the police despite the security situation in the state.
In the statement titled, ‘Murder of Ahmed Gulak by armed bandits’, the Imo Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro, was said to have ordered a discreet investigation into the murder incident.
