President Muhammadu Buhari said on Sunday the suspected killers of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ahmed Gulak, will not escape justice.
Gulak, who is a former Special Adviser on Political Matters to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, was shot dead by unknown persons in Owerri, Imo State, on Sunday morning.
In a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President said the APC chieftain’s murder was premeditated.
He said: “I’m repulsed by such premeditated and gruesome murder of Gulak by evil people who are determined to undermine the peace, unity, and territorial integrity of our country.
“Let me warn however that nobody or group of people who engages in such despicable acts should expect to go free.
“We will deploy all resources at our disposal to ensure that such callous and criminal elements are brought to justice.”
