IPOB denies involvement in killing of Ahmed Gulak


The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has denied participation in the assassination of Ahmed Gulak, a former special adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan, on his way to Sam Mbakwe Airport in Owerri on Sunday.

The Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful in a statement said IPOB has no knowledge of the alleged assassination and the late Gulak posed no threat to their cause, to warrant him being killed.

He noted that blaming IPOB for this heinous act serves only to divert attention away from the true perpetrators.

“For us, linking IPOB with the assassination of Gulak is simply to pitch the East against the core Islamic North as a cover and justification for another round of pogrom against Easterners living in the North.”

He urged security agencies to properly investigate the incident and sent condolences to Gulak’s family for the unfortunate incident and prayed God to grant his soul eternal rest.
