We had a productive interaction on how to curb banditry – Gumi speaks on his meeting with security agencies

Controversial Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has disclosed what played out upon honoring an invitation by security agencies over his recent comments about banditry. 

 

Mohammed Idris, minister of information and orientation has said that Gumi was invited after he accused the federal government of being reckless by declaring people yet to be tried in court “terrorism financiers”. 

 

Commenting on the meeting, Gumi stated that he had a productive interaction with security agencies on how to curb banditry. He said; 

 

“Only one person is above the law: the innocent. Last night I got many frantic calls from well-wishers and journalists about a news item that I was interviewed by security. There is absolutely no cause for alarm.

“Yes, we had a productive interaction on how to curb banditry as we are all trying — each in his own sphere — to tackle the monster bedevilling the nation. There was no animosity but courtesy and full of respect.

“We all need as a nation to unite and work in synergy to achieve an everlasting peace.”
