The self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has labelled popular Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi a terrorist and one of the sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria.
Kanu who made this claim on Monday while responding to Gumi’s remark equating him and other secessionist agitators to Boko Haram terrorists, said Gumi and those seeking the integration of bandits are the sponsors of terrorism in the country.
It would be recalled that Gumi had likened Kanu and others agitating for Biafra and the Oduduwa Republic, to the Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.
In a statement issued through IPOB’s National Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, Kanu asked the Islamic cleric to stop comparing freedom fighters to terrorists.
“We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), under the leadership of our great leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, read with incredulity a provocative remark credited to a filthy looking so-called acclaimed Islamic cleric in the mould of Sheik Gumi that bandits and freedom fighters are the same. Gumi in the said media report, allegedly compared agitators of Biafra and Oduduwa republics with his Fulani bandits rampaging the North and ravaging the entire South. Such a statement if true, has simply unmasked and exposed the real identify of this man masquerading as an Islamic cleric when in actual fact he is one of the hardened supporters of Fulani terrorism.
“With such ignorance laden utterance from a supposed Islamic scholar, the world does not need to look far for the real sponsors of banditry and terrorism in Nigeria. We now know those behind the killing spree and evil agenda to decimate indigenous ethnic populations and non-muslim communities across Nigeria.
“Gumi is a terrorist calling peaceful agitators terrorists. He has just revealed his true identity. Now the world knows those to be held responsible for the daily bloodbath in Nigeria. Before now Nigerians were deceived into believing that bandits and other agents of terror on rampage all over Nigeria were invisible and without a fixed address. How come this pretender and self-acclaimed Islamic cleric knew where to find the bandits? He even posed for a picture with gun wielding murderers and was very proud of it.
“Not only did Sheik Gumi wine and dine with their bandits, but he has also suddenly become their advocate. He has gone to the extent of comparing bloodsuckers with self-determination activists. What a national embarrassment!
“In his warped mind, Sheik Gumi can no longer differentiate between self-determination which is a constitutionally guaranteed right and terrorism which is a crime. This hypocrisy has confirmed our earlier position that terrorism and banditry in Nigeria are common agenda of the caliphate,” part of the statement read.
