Nnamdi Kanu : What About Gumi ? He Has Become Untouchable – Governor Diri to Buhari
Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State has urged President Muhammadu Buhari administration to talk about the renowned Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Abubakar Gumi, over his alleged link to bandits.
The Governor said this while speaking on the rearrest of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Diri, who spoke on Tuesday, when he featured as a guest on Channels Television breakfast current affairs
programme, Sunrise Daily, said Gumi had become somebody no one can touch, adding that it was very unfair.
Diri said, “Two things I have to say.
“First, they should give him [Nnamdi Kanu] a fair hearing so that the trial will not be done in a way that everyone
(especially the Igbo) will see it as oppression.
“Second, as we talk about the IPOB, what about the boys (bandits and herdsmen) organising killings in the North and in the whole country❓
What of Sheik Gumi❓ He has
become somebody no one can touch. That’s very unfair.”
Gumi had recently warned the
government against the killing of bandits, insisting that the criminals were victims too.
