Imo state Governor Hope Uzodimma says he is devastated by the gruesome murder of his friend and an APC Chieftain Mr. Ahmed Gulak on his way to Sam Mbakwe airport Owerri on Sunday.
He has also commiserated with families of those who died recently through stray bullet in Owerri and victims of kidnapping, banditry and armed robbery in the state assuring that his government will continue to reach out to them.
Speaking on the recent security situation in the state at government house Owerri, the governor described the killing of Mr. Gulak as a clear case of political assassination noting that no effort will be spared in unraveling those behind the dastard act.
Gov Uzodimma while commiserating with the family of late Gulak said police had made some arrests in connection with the crime and vowed to punish those behind the death of the man who he described as a patriot.
He used the opportunity to debunk social media reports that his convoy was attacked adding that nothing of that nature happened to him.
