Former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode launched a series of questions at Imo state governor, Hope Uzodimma, over the death of former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak, in Owerri, Imo State.
Taking to his Twitter page, Femi Fani-Kayode asked why Uzodinma quickly came out under 24 hours to declare IPOB/ESN as the perpetrators of the death of Gulak.
Chief Press Secretary of Hope Uzodimma, Oguwike Nwachuku, released a statement on behalf of the governor as he explained that FFK jumped into the story of Gulak’s murder, without having his facts right and he may have an ulterior motive.
The statement read in part: ”Why did the Gov. of Imo not provide security for Gulak? Why was Gulak dressed in jeans & a baseball cap as if he was in disguise? I have known Gulak for 15 years & I never saw him in jeans & a baseball cap. Why did he sneak out of the hotel in a car hire without any security?
Who were the men in the car with him and who was the driver? How come we have not heard from them? Why did the Gov. not supply Gulak with a car to drop him at the airport? Is it true that they fell out badly over some unresolved issues?”
Why did the Governor quickly say that this was a political assassination within 24 hours of the incident? How did he manage to conduct this investigation in record time? Why did they try to give the impression that IPOB and ESN killed Gulak & how can we be sure that those
they killed later & claimed were Gulak’s assassins really were Gulak’s assassins? These are just of the questions that need to be answered. Whether they are answered or not one thing is clear to me: the suggestion that IPOB or ESN killed Gulak is nonsensical and absurd.
I do not believe that for one minute. Someone is trying yo give a dog a name in order to hang it.
FFK hit back again at Hope Uzodinma and wrote;
“Instead of attacking me why doesn’t Governor Hope Uzodinmma and the Imo State Government simply answer the questions that I raised? It appears that I have rattled their cage. If you have no skeleton in your cupboard why are you so badly shaken by my innocent questions?”
