The relationship between the bandits and the renowned Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahnad Gumi, has continued to set tongues wagging.
People were taken aback when they saw the pictures of the Islamic scholar with the bandits.
The heavily armed bandits told him that they took up arms because of the certain injustices done to them by the Nigerian state.
Reacting, the Senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming of Christ Ministry, Adewale Giwa, said that Sheikh Ahmad Gumi is playing the script of President Muhammadu Buhari on the issue of banditry. ”Gumi is only playing the script of president Muhammadu Buhari and other Fulani politicians. By now, Gumi ought to have been arrested, interrogated and jailed for knowing where the criminal Fulani herdsmen live.
“Didn’t I say president Bubari has created jobs for his fulani kinsmen? Are they Nigerians and why should the federal government compensate criminals who rape, kidnap and kill innocent Nigerians?
“I doubt the existence of Nigeria if this could be happening in the presence of security operatives. President Buhari cannot intimidate or frighten me,” the pastor said.
Also speaking, Oby Ezekwesili, former Minister of Education accused the President Muhammadu Buhari government of enabling kidnapping in Nigeria.
