Gulak: Lawan urges northern youths to shun revenge
Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, on Monday, condemned the gruesome killing of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Ahmed Gulak.
WUZUPNIGERIA reported that Gulak who was a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan was shot dead in Imo State by six gunmen who intercepted him on his way to Abuja on Saturday.
In a press statement signed by Ola Awoniyi, Special Adviser (Media) to President of the Senate, Lawan said that there can be no justification for Gulak's killing.
He further urged his kinsmen to shun revenge and allow relevant authorities to serve justice, according to the statement titled 'Senate President condemns killing of Ahmed Gulak.'
The statement read: "The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has condemned the gruesome murder of a former Speaker of the Adamawa House of Assembly and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Ahmed Gulak, which occured on Sunday morning in Imo State.
"Lawan describes the dastardly act as one crime too many and calls for a swift investigation to bring all who are involved in the crime to justice.
"The Senate President says there can be no justification for the brutal murder of a human being and fellow citizen.
"Lawan, however, appeals for restraint on the part of those callling for revenge, saying they should allow the relevant authorities to serve justice on the matter as the injury of the crime was inflicted on Nigeria as a whole.
"The Senate President condoles with the family and friends of the departed as well as the government and people of Adamawa State on the incident."
