A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has called for the arrest and investigation of a Kaduna based Islamic scholar, Shiekh Ahmad Gumi over his alleged liaison with bandits and terrorists in the Northern part of the country.
Fani-Kayode made this call in a series of tweets on his Twitter handle on Wednesday.
In his tweets, the former minister daid Gumi is “a BAG man, a FRONT and a PR officer for the terrorists that have plagued our land and I have no doubt that he personally benefits from the ransoms that are being paid.”
Fani-Kayode was in reacting to an allegation from a woman who had revealed that “bandits took us to Gumi’s house. He directed us to an Ahmed, who invited a Fulani from Kaduna. We contributed N800,000 for him. He told us that was just for transport. I cried and pleaded with him, saying I’m a widow. He said it wasn’t his concern” during an interview with RootsTV.
In reaction, Fani-Kayode berated the cleric saying: “These people have so much blood on their hands yet Gumi still holds himself out as their advocate and best friend. He is nothing but an extortionist who thrives on the misery and blood of those that have been murdered and kidnapped.
“Gumi must be brought to justice and so must every single one of his foreign Fulani terrorist friends and all those within and outside Government that have links with ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, the Fulani terrorists, the Taliban, ISWAP, Al Shabab, and any other evil terrorist organisation which seeks to kill and Islamise our people and conquer and occupy our territory and nation.
“If the Federal Government refuses to act against Gumi it will raise questions about their commitment to fighting terror and stopping the terrorists. Every day people are being killed and kidnapped.
“This madness has to stop and those behind it and that covertly support it must be brought to justice.”
