…Northern group gives Uzodinma 2 weeks to fish out killers

Barely 24 hours after the gruesome murder of a former presidential aide and an All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain, Ahmed Gulak, in Owerri, the Imo State capital, a group, the Northern Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), has warned that it will declare Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, a persona non grata in the North, if Gulak’s killers were not brought to book.


The group also insisted that the Imo State government must give an account of those who killed Gulak, pointing out that the continuous killing of northerners and destruction of security facilities in the state would no longer be tolerated.


In a statement, issued by the organisation’s National President, Isah Abubakar, the group said the Federal Government must be alive to its constitutional responsibility of protecting lives and properties, if the prevailing situation must not degenerate into a civil war.


The statement reads: “It’s so pathetic and sad-  dened (sic) the continuous killing and lawlessness going on in the South Eastern part of Nigeria.
