The All Progressives Congress (APC) has called on security agencies to ensure the arrest of the killers of Ahmed Gulak, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
Gulak, a chieftain of the APC was shot and killed by some gunmen on Sunday in Owerri, Imo State.
However, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), expressed shock over the killing of Gulak.
He described Gulak as a shining political leader and patriot.
Akpanudoedehe, in a statement on Monday, said: “The party joins Nigerians to mourn his death and condemn his murderers in the strongest possible terms.
”We commiserate with his immediate family and the government and people of Adamawa State.
“The APC and well-meaning Nigerians are calling for national unity to fight crimes in the country.
“We urge relevant security agencies to leave no stone unturned in their efforts to track down and swiftly bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice.”
He reiterated the need for Nigerians to continuously support and cooperate with the security agencies who put their lives on the line to protect lives and property.
