Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the death of his former special adviser on political matters, Ahmed Gulak, describing it as a rude shock.

WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that gunmen on Sunday shot a former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak, to death while on his away to Sam Mbakwe International Cargo Airport in Imo State.

Reacting to the sad development, Jonathan praised the deceased as a “loyal public servant”, expressing how hurtful the death made him.

This was contained in a statement released by a special adviser on media to the former president, Ikechukwu Eze.

It reads: “I received with shock the death of Alh Ahmed Gulak who died on Sunday, May 30, 2021, in Owerri, Imo State.

“Gulak was a loyal public servant and dedicated patriot who gave his all in service to his country. His death is a painful loss to me and many others who worked and interacted with him.

“He will be remembered for his modest contributions to the growth of our nation’s democracy, especially his memorable days both as a skillful speaker of Adamawa State House of Assembly and political adviser in our administration.”

Jonathan then offered commiserations to the family and loved ones of the deceased.

“My deepest condolences to his family, the government and the people of Adamawa state, who are bound to feel the loss of this eminent and patriotic Nigerian.

“May God grant his family, friends and supporters solace, even as I appeal for calm while law enforcement bodies carry out their investigations.”

The Macias children, who are being cared for by Daniel’s parents, have not quite grasped what has happened to their mother and father, Serey said. After Daniel died on Sept. 9, a counselor explained to the two eldest children, 7 and 5, that both of their parents were gone, Serey said. While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
