According to Nigeria’s intelligence services, ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s political adviser, Ahmed Gulak, was assassinated by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Eastern Security Network (ESN) is a militant wing of the proscribed secessionist group led by Nnamdi Kanu.
The ESN has repeatedly been linked to violence against security personnel and destruction of government facilities in the regions to the south.
An intelligence officer told PRNigeria after Gulak’s murder that IPOB has been indicted.
Officers intercepted communication and saw videos where Kanu threatened death to anyone who failed to obey his sit-at-home order from May 29 to May 31.
“Why should Nigeria and the media laud IPOB by claiming its atrocities against security services and Nigerians are committed by unknown gunmen, when we have arrested their members who confessed to their involvement?””, the officer replied.
In a recent broadcast, Kanu announced that the sit-at-home would begin at 6 p.m. Saturdays until 6 p.m. As of Monday.
The IPOB leader warned that the order must be obeyed by the people in the South-East.
“At 6p.m. There will be no movement on the 29th, this is not a sit-at-home day. If you are found outside after 6 p.m. Then he said, “You’re dead.”.
The late Gulak, a leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was murdered in Owerri, the capital of Imo State.
Gulak’s personal friend and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa, Dr. Umar Arɗo, confirmed the incident on Sunday.
