How I Have Government Backing To Meet Bandits – Gumi

Islamic cleric Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has denied that he was invited or arrested by the State Security Service (SSS), adding that the government was aware of his rapport with the bandits in the forests.

The cleric was invited by the SSS after he alleged that security agents collaborate with bandits to engage in killing and kidnapping for ransom while speaking on Arise TV earlier in the week.

Mr Gumi after Jumaat prayer at Sultan Bello Mosque in Kaduna State, however, denied claims that he was invited or arrested by the SSS.

“Nobody invited me for questioning or any arrest, I can say that categorically,” Mr Gumi told Channels TV. “Since I ventured into the forest, I went there with full security, the police, with the knowledge of the DSS, traditional rulers, the Fulani leaders, I never went alone.”
