Kogi Police Commissioner, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak,  who presided over the panel that conducted the Imo APC primary, alleged that he narrowly escaped being kidnapped by agents of Imo State Governor,  Rochas Okorocha.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja,  Gulak said that nine of the 12-member committee were not as lucky as they were abducted by the governor who led a detachment of policemen to the hotel where they were lodged.

He announced that the governorship primary was however conducted peacefully with Sen. Hope Uzodinma emerging winner with 423,895 votes to defeat eight other aspirants including the son in-law to Okorocha, Uche Nwosu.

Uzodinma had earlier been cleared by the NWC for Wednesday’s senatorial primary election in the state. Gulak said he had to flee Owerri, the Imo state capital at about 4.00am  yesterday for safety reasons for Port Harcourt from where he boarded a flight to Abuja.

“In fact, the tension there was so high and if not for my resilience, we were supposed to have been rounded up and taken to an unknown destination. But I insisted that my first destination was the Commissioner of Police. When we got to the Commissioner of Police, I deposited the materials. Unknown to them, the materials I deposited with them were the ballot papers that were to be used when there is a tie between aspirants at the wards.

“Myself, Col. Igbanor and Hon. Bernard Miko were the only three doing this job as others disappeared and we learnt that they were at the Government House. So, when we sensed that something was fishy, by 4.00am, we left Owerri after concluding the entry of the results. The election was held, results generated and a winner emerged and the winner is Sen. Hope Uzodinma.

“My secretary disappeared around 2.00am. ”

Speaking on the jubilation at the Imo Government House, he said: “Some of our members were rounded up in their hotel and taken to the Government House and whatever they might have done there should be expected.”
