Gulak’s death, political ― Northern Youths allege.
Arewa Youth for Peace and Security (AYPS) has alluded that the killing of Barrister Ahmed Gulak, former Political Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was political.
National President of the group, Salisu Magaji cautioned Nigerians against giving Gulak’s murder ethnic colouration, noting that northern elders and leaders have been going to the Southeast on daily basis without any problem and Igbos have also been going about their legitimate businesses in the North without any hitch.
Speaking with journalists in Bauchi on Monday, he advised Nigerians not to allow the assassination of Gulak to be used to further cause division and disunity among Nigerians.
He urged the police to investigate the killing with a view to unraveling the motive and chided some groups in the North for insinuating that Gulak was killed by Igbos because he was a northerner.
