The popular Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has been reportedly summoned by the Department of State Services for questioning.
Gumi came under severe criticism after he claimed that the Nigerian military and other security outfits are in the same league with the bandits who have been terrorising the country.
The Islamic scholar has in recent times irked the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, after he claimed the security arm of the pro-Biafra Group, Eastern Security Network were terrorists. He defended the activities of herders and bandits, insisting that the killings and kidnappings were retaliatory.
Gumi had said during an interview on Arise TV that “these bandits, if you don’t know, are cooperating with a lot of bad elements in our security system. This is a business. So many people are involved, you’ll be so surprised.”
As of press time, the DSS was yet to confirm the summon.
