Apparently aggrieved by the killing of Ahmed Gulag on Sunday evening by unknown gunmen, The Northern Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has given Governor Hope Uzodinma a two-week ultimatum to fish out the killers of the politician.
Gulak was killed Sunday morning as he headed to the Sam Mbakwe Airport in Owerri.
According to the police his Toyota Camry taxi was ambushed by six assassins, riding in a Toyota Sienna.
They identified and shot him around Umueze Obiangwu in Ngor-Okpala Local Government Area close to the Airport.
The NYCN in a reaction Sunday urged Uzodinma to fish out the perpetrators and made them fail justice.
NYCN threatened to make Governor Uzodinma a persona not grata throughout the northern states.
NYCN National President, Isah Abubakar, said: “It’s so pathetic and saddened the continuous killing and lawlessness going on in the South Eastern part of Nigeria.
“The government of Imo State must give an account of those who killed Gulak. The continuous killing of Northerners and destruction of security facilities in Imo State will no longer be tolerated.”
The group urged the federal government to perform its constitutional duty of preserving lives and property by taking immediate action to prevent the lawlessness from dovetailing into civil war.
