“We condemn without mincing words the murder of Alhaji Ahmed Gulak and call on security agencies to unravel the circumstances surrounding his death.
“We equally condemn the uncivilized acts of destroying government properties and attacks on uniformed operatives. All utterances and conducts capable of inciting people must be discontinued,” Nnamani said.
