The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has reacted to the death of Ahmed Gulak, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and former aide of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan.
IPOB’s spokesman, Emma Powerful, fingered Governor Hope Uzodinma, describing Gulak’s death as a “professional assassination.”
Powerful insisted that members of the group were not responsible for Gulak’s murder which occurred on sunday morning, May 30th.
The statement was in reaction to the allegation by the Nigerian intelligence community which accused IPOB members of killing Gulak in Imo State.
Powerful described the claims by the Nigeria Intelligence community as unprofessional. He, however, charged the state Governor, Hope Uzodinma, to disclose how Gulak died.
According to Powerful: “The Nigeria intelligence community has shown how unprofessional they are, today is not sit-at-home.
“People are going to church and this was why he shifted the date to tomorrow. This is political assassination; we are not in the same party with Gulak.
“Uzodinma and APC knows about Gulaks death, we do not know anything about his movement, talk more of him being in the state. Nigerians believe this because they hate IPOB, Biafra.”
