Femi Fani-Kayode has said he does not believe that the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) or its security outfit, the Eastern Security Network (ESN) assassinated Ahmed Gulak, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that Gulak was assassinated in the early hours of Sunday, May 30, 2021 on his way to the airport in Owerri.
The police late on the same day released a statement saying that the killers of Gulak have been neutralised.
However, the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, in an address, suggested that Gulak’s assassination was politically motivated.
Reacting on Wednesday, Fani-Kayode who is a former minister of aviation in a series of tweets said that Uzodinma has some questions to answer over the death of Gulak.
Fani-Kayode said, “Why did the Gov. of Imo not provide security for Gulak? Why was Gulak dressed in jeans & a baseball cap as if he was in disguise? I have known Gulak for 15 years & I never saw him in jeans & a baseball cap. Why did he sneak out of the hotel in a car hire without any security?
“Who were the men in the car with him and who was the driver? How come we have not heard from them? Why did the Gov. not supply Gulak with a car to drop him at the airport? Is it true that they fell out badly over some unresolved issues?
“Why did the Governor quickly say that this was a political assassination within 24 hours of the incident? How did he mange to conduct this investigation in record time? Why did they try to give the impression that IPOB and ESN killed Gulak & how can we be sure that those they killed later & claimed were Gulak’s assassins really were Gulak’s assassins? These are just some of the questions that need to be answered. Whether they are answered or not one thing is clear to me: the suggestion that IPOB or ESN killed Gulak is nonsensical and absurd.
“I do not believe that for one minute. Someone is trying yo give a dog a bad name in order to hang it.”
