Senator Shehu Sani has pleaded with the youths in Northern Nigeria not to avenge the death of APC Chieftain, Ahmed Gurak, in Owerri, Imo State on Sunday, May 30.
Gulak was murdered by some gunmen in Owerri, Imo State Capital, while on his way to catch his flight at Sam Mbakwe Airport with two other men.
Some Northern youths have threatened to retaliate if the killers are not brought to justice. The police have since identified and killed the assailants who murdered Gulak.
In a statement released today May 31, Sani who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Assembly, pleaded with his kinsmen in the North to avoid a major conflict with the Igbo by not revenging Gulak’s death.
“The cold blood murder of Ahmed Gulak in Owerri stands unreservedly condemned.
The murder has all the elements of some forces trying to trigger an inter ethnic war between Northerners and the Igbo.
We must resist that plot. The statement by IPOB associating themselves from such despicable and barbaric act and even extending their condolences to the family of the late Gulak should be accepted in good faith.
The police and other associated security guard should do a diligent investigation and look beyond hurried finger pointing. may Allah Grant Ahmed Gulak Aljana firdausi. Amin”.
