The killing of the top Nigerian politician (Ahmed Gulak) of the northern origin by unknown assassins in the southeast region has raised many reactions.
Earlier yesterday, a group from the north issued an ultimatum to the Imo State governor to provide the killers of Gulak within two weeks. They made a threat of revenge and declaring him wanted in the north if he fails to apprehend the assassins and prosecute them.

Another group from the north has stated that the cohabitation of the southeastern and northern people in the same nation can no longer work. The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) on Sunday stated that the north can no longer coexist with the Igbo people of Nigeria. The group pointed at the assassination of Ahmed Gulak, an ex-aide to the former President Goodluck Jonathan in Imo State. They iterated that the north can no longer stay with the southeasterners in Nigeria.
According to the Spokesman of the group, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, the killing of Ahmed Gulak is a strategy by the Igbo people to repeat the bad incident of 1966.
He affirmed that the southeast people are sponsoring the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and the Eastern Security Network (ESN) to distort peace and stability.
He said that from all indications, that the violent IPOB, ESN, and other numerous gangs in the southeast are being funded and supported by Igbo groups in Diaspora.
The assassination of Ahmed Gulak, a prominent politician and northern leader is no longer something to treat with a kid glove. He said that it is an insult to expect other parts of the country, particularly the north, to continue to coexist as one country with the Igbos as a federation.
He also blamed the Senate for scheduling the public hearing on the Constitution Review at a time like this. This is not the right time to fix that public hearing according to him. He rejected the decision describing it as effort in futility.
How do you see the call for separation? Do you support the group for Nigeria’s disintegration?
