Northern govs condemn Gulak killing, kidnap of Niger students


The Northern Governors’ Forum has described the assassination of former Special Adviser to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan on Political Matters, Ahmed Gulak, as most unfortunate and totally condemnable.

In a statement on Monday, Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong, while reacting to the killing, described it as a criminal act that must be condemned in totality.

Lalong said, “The killing of Gulak must be seen as a criminal act and treated as such, warning against insinuations and politicisation that could lead to further violence.”

He said the report by the police that it has identified and engaged the suspected killers of the late politician should further be consolidated to enable security agencies to forestall future occurrences.

Meanwhile, the Northern Governors Forum has also expressed disgust over yet another abduction of innocent citizens across three local government areas of Niger State including students and teachers of an Islamiya school.

Governor Lalong said this horrible situation needs to be brought to an end in order to give respite for the people to engage in their legitimate activities without molestation.

He reiterated the commitment of the Forum in working with the security agencies and the Federal Government in tacking the ugly level of insecurity in the region and the nation at large.
