Abattam disclosed that Anosike had been on the trail of the command since the killing of Gulak last year, after his escape during a gun duel between the police and his gang members at Aboh Mbaise shortly after the murder of the APC chieftain during which five of the suspects were killed.


However, while speaking to newsmen, Anosike said he was a commercial bus driver and not a member of the criminal terror gang.

According to him, Gulak’s killers approached him to convey them in his vehicle which he attempted to resist but later accepted when they threatened to kill him.
He stated that he drove the gang members to the spot of killing and blocked Gulak’s vehicle which was on its way to the airport.


According to him, they shot the APC chieftain after he resisted the demand by the gunmen that he should come down from the vehicle.
The command’s spokesman said that the others paraded were criminals who have been terrorising communities in Imo State.
