Nigerian Govt Invites Sheikh Gumi For Questioning Over Bandits Kidnapping Activities | MarvelTvUpdates

The Nigerian Government has invited controversial Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, for questioning.

Gumi was invited for questioning over his comments on the activities of bandits in the country.

The minister of Information and Orientation, Mohammed Idris, disclosed while addressing journalists at the State House, Abuja, on Monday.

The minister said the Islamic cleric was not “above the law”, adding that the government has deemed it necessary to invite him for questioning.

A few weeks ago, Gumi had urged the Tinubu-led government to join him in negotiating with bandits.

Gumi urged Tinubu not to repeat what he described as the ‘mistake’ made by former President Muhammadu Buhari, who refused to dialogue with bandits.

He also said that terrorism in Nigeria was not financed by Nigerians but by the terrorists who kidnap people for ransom.

But if they think that he is also making some statements that appear to be reckless, he will also be reprimanded.

“There is nobody above the law. Let me put it here. And I’m aware that he has also been a guest of security agencies to answer questions,” Idris said.

According to him, “When you make remarks, especially those that border on our national security it is incumbent on our national security to think further, and they are doing just that, no one is above the law.”
