Adamu Garba, a former Presidential aspirant, has stated that controversial Islamic tutor and cleric, Sheikh Gumi, has to state in clear terms whether he’s with terrorists or with Nigerians.
This followed Gumi’s advice to the federal government to get N100 million from the Central Bank of Nigeria which will be used to secure the release of the students abducted by bandits from Greenfield University, Kaduna.
This is in addition to his call for amnesty for bandits, saying the move will make them drop their arms.
One Twitter user, @Yemi_News247, drew the attention of Garba to Gumi’s recent activities, as he wondered why the cleric hasn’t been picked up by the Department of State Services.
He tweeted, “@adamugarba what do you have to say about Sheik Gumi recent activities? He is gradually becoming the financial secretary to the bandits/minister for banditry and ransom payments. It’s a shame that DSS has been compromised. I weep for my country.”
In response, Garba said, “I think Sheikh Gumi would have to explain in clear times whether he is together with the Bandits/Terrorists or with the Nigerian people.”
