Gulak was murdered in Owerri, Imo capital, on Sunday while on his way to the airport.
Speaking on the murder on Monday, Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, stated that the murder of Gulak “appears to be a clear case of political assassination.”
Reacting to the development, Wike asked Uzodimma to allow security operatives conclude their investigation before attributing the murder to politicians.
He made this call in an interview with Channels Television on Monday.
Wike stated that the comments of his Imo colleague show that Uzodimma already knows the outcome of the police investigation.
“The point is very clear. We should not try to politicise everything. I think the governor of Imo state, my brother, Hope Uzodimma, should allow the security agencies to do their proper investigation,” Wike said.
“It is too early for him to come out to say it is political assassination. Having done that, it means that you already know, and knowing a product of investigation means that you already know those who committed that crime and that will not be fair.
“When things of this nature happen, allow the security agencies to really go into the matter.”
Wike also queried why a personality like Gulak will leave Imo without security detail, considering the rising insecurity in the south-east.
“Remember, even on the pages of the newspapers, when we heard this news, if I’m correct, the police said Ahmed Gulak was killed by bandits. Police said when he left, he left without security,” he said.
