Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi, has stated that it is unfair to compare the activities of of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) with those of criminal herdsmen. Gumi is directly stating that the crimes perpetrated by IPOB members outweighs those committed by bandits.
He said, IPOB members kill security agents while the herdsmen only kidnap children to make money and not to kill them. 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 made a case for bandits in the country. He has called for amnesty for the bandits who have overtime carried out the abduction of students from different parts of the country.
