The recent arrest of the Deputy Commander of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) by the Nigerian military has sparked much debate and speculation. The individual in question, charged with the murder of Ahmed Gulak, political adviser to former President Jonathan, could face serious repercussions if found guilty. This news attracts people’s attention too much. People are very curious to know all the information about this incident. The incident attracted international media and general public attention. Follow us till the end for all the known facts about the incident.
The arrest of the IPOB Deputy Commander is just one of many efforts by the Nigerian government to quell the violence and unrest in the country. The IPOB, a separatist group based in the southeast of the country, has been accused of numerous crimes, including acts of terrorism and incitement to violence against the Nigerian government. While the group claims to fight for the rights of the Igbo people, many have criticized its tactics as dangerous and counterproductive.
On May 30, 2021, Mr. Gulak, a senior member of the ruling All Progressives Congress, was shot dead by gunmen in Owerri, Imo State. The politician was attacked on his way to Sam Mbakwe Airport in Owerri, where he planned to fly to Abuja. State police later charged IPOB and its activist wing, ESN, with the murder of the political adviser. The IPOB is a group advocating for the establishment of an independent state of Biafra that seeks to secede from part of South-South and South-East Nigeria.
During a press conference held in Owerri, the police presented a suspect who is a deserter from Amaohuru Army in Imo State in Nguru, Aboh-Mbaise LGA. The suspect claimed the politician was killed because he refused to comply with the shooters’ demands. During the suspect’s parade, Ngwagu was identified as the planner of the politician’s murder.
The Nigerian government has insisted that its actions are necessary to maintain law and order in the country. The officials argued that the IPOB poses a serious national security threat and that the government has a responsibility to protect its citizens from such threats. They also accused the IPOB of using violence and intimidation to achieve its goals and pointed to the group’s alleged involvement in Gulak’s murder as evidence of its extremist tendencies.
