The Imo state claim to have neutralised 7 members of the Unknown Gunmen who allegedly were responsible for the death of Ahmed Gulak, who was murdered on his way to the Sam Mbakwe airport in Imo state.
The police in their press release made these claims and that has raised few concerns as how they were sure that they got the right people and not simply wasting innocent youths and frame them up for a crime they knew nothing about.
The speed which the Intelligence Services rushed to blame IPOB for the killing and the rush by the police to already identify and neutralise the alleged suspects, raises some serious concerns.
The press release is below.
