Gumi said it is not right to compare the activities of criminal herdsmen with those of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)..
Popular Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi has defended the actions and activities of killer herdsmen.
According to him, it is unfair to compare the activities of criminal herdsmen with those of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Gumi said crimes committed by IPOB members outweigh those committed by bandits.
He added that IPOB members kill security agents while herdsmen do not kill but only kidnap children to make money. He said this when he appeared on Arise TV today June 23.
“IPOB is attacking the police, the army, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other government institutions; killing our men in service.
And the herdsmen are kidnapping children not to kill them but to get money; so how can you compare somebody who is killing our gallant men in the armed forces directly to somebody who is kidnapping children to make money and not to kill them. Look, we need some fairness in what we are doing” he said
Sheik Gumi has consistently supported bandits in the country. He has called for amnesty for the bandits who have overtime carried out the abduction and killing of students from different parts of the country.
