Ahmed Gulak, a former assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, is believed to have been murdered.
Remember that Gulak was murdered at Ngor Okpala Airport Road in Owerri last year.
On Monday, the Imo Police Command paraded the alleged killers of the politician.
Anosike Chimobi, from Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government Area (LGA) in the state, was arrested a year after Gulak’s death, according to Channels Television.
Gulak, a former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, was assassinated by a group of armed men in Imo State on May 30, 2021.
Reportedly, he was followed from his hotel room to the location where he was murdered near Umueze Obiangwu in Ngor-Okpala LGA, close to Sam Mbakwe Airport Road in Owerri.
Abattam, while parading the suspects among other individuals, stated that Chimobi had been on the trail of the command since the murder of Gulak a year ago.
He added that the suspect escaped during a gun battle between police and his gang members at Aboh Mbaise, which occurred shortly after the murder of the APC leader and in which five suspects were killed.
Chimobi, who also spoke with reporters, claimed to be a professional bus driver and not a gang member.
He claimed that Gulak’s murderers contacted him to transport them in his truck, and he initially resisted, but eventually gave in when they threatened to kill him.
The suspect admitted that he drove the crooks to the scene and prevented Gulak’s vehicle from reaching the airport.
According to him, the APC leader was shot after refusing the gunmen’s demand to exit the car.
Chimobi explained that the assailants were later confronted by a team of security agents who opened fire on the vehicle transporting them till it flipped and caught fire.
The spokesman for the command stated that the police have also apprehended other suspects who terrorized communities in Imo.
He stated that among those paraded were members of the gang that burned down the home of Professor George Obiozor, the president-general of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
Among the items confiscated from the suspects paraded by the police are various caliber firearms, an assortment of charms, and a live snake.
