Honourable Bede Eke, a member of the house of representatives from Imo state, has accused security agents of merciless killings in his constituency.
He said that the security operatives deployed in Imo following the death of Ahmed Gulak, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), have been killing people.
Recall that Ahmed Gulak, one of Jonathan former aide, was shot dead on Sunday by gunmen while returning to Abuja from Owerri, the capital of Imo state.
Bede, representing Aboh Mbaise/Ngor Okpala constituency, said since the APC chieftain’s murder, soldiers and police officers have been indiscriminately arresting and killing innocent people in the state and many shops have been destroyed in the area, adding that his constituents are innocent and have no hand in Gulak’s murder.
Eke said “I want to tell you that we’ve had casualties, some of my constituents have been killed, and we expect the police, army, military to unravel these killings, those killed are innocent people, a young man and the family has written to the Nigerian army. But I want to tell you that we the people of Aboh Mbaise are not happy with it. As the representative of my people, for us, I want to make it known to the world that we are waiting for the outcome of that petition.”
He gave the Nigerian Army an ultimatum of 14 days to unravel the killing of that gentleman, who left a pregnant and expectant mother, that is, his wife, then two children , one is three years old, one is two years old. What will become of those children?”
“We are not killers, but if anything happens on our land, the police should take their time to investigate and unravel the perpetrators of these crimes. The question we are asking security agents is, why are you after my people? That the man was killed close to the airport, we own the airport , so does that mean we are the killers of Gulak? ?
I have pictures, I have videos of people being killed. Our people can no longer sleep in their houses.”
