Gulak killed on Constitution Review assignment, Omo-Agege Confirms
Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, has confirmed that Ahmed Gulak, the slain former political adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan, was in Imo State to attend the public hearing of the constitution review organised by the Senate last week.
Omo-Agege revealed in a statement pointed out that as one of the consultants to the Senate Constitution Committee on constitution review, the legal practitioner was in the Imo State capital for the zonal public hearing on constitution review for the South-East geopolitical zone.
“The death of Rt. Hon. Ahmed Gulak was a monumental tragedy that has shaken us as members of the Senate Constitution Review Committee to our bone marrow,” Omo-Agege said.
“As one of the consultants to the panel, he volunteered to go to Owerri for the zonal public hearing on Constitution Review. As a patriotic Nigerian, he died on national service.”
According to Omo-Agege, the late Gulak would be greatly missed as he gave his all for the service of his country.
Senator Omo-Agege commiserated with the family of the deceased as well as the government and people of Adamawa State over the unfortunate incident.
“I pray that Allah (SWT) will forgive his shortcomings, grant him Al-Jannatul Firdausi and give the family the fortitude and patience to bear the irreparable loss,” Omo-Agege said.
Describing the assassination as wicked, dastardly, callous and barbaric, he called on security operatives to fish out the perpetrators and their sponsors.
“There was no justifiable reason for this murderous act by the evil men behind Gulak”s death. I call on the police and other security agencies to fish out the assailants and their sponsors to face the full wrath of the law,” Omo-Agege said.
“This is the least we owe the late Gulak. And it will serve as a deterrent to others. Security agencies should immediately restore law and order in the South East and other parts of the country so that the situation does not escalate.
“I also call for restraints on the part of those irked by the dastardly act. Reprisal attacks would only exacerbate the already tensed situation,” he added
