Boko Haram Leader, Abubakar Shekau has blasted a Kaduna-based Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi over his involvement in negotiations with Bandits.
POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that Gumi has been a self appointed tour to several hideouts of Armed bandits in the north striking peace deals and negotiating ransoms. His move has generated controversy with many condemning his actions.
In a recent audio recording obtained by DAILY NIGERIAN, Shekau stated that Gumi was ‘not serving God’ adding that ‘woe betide him’.
“Oh Ya Ahmad Gumi! Oh Ahmad Gumi, now you are wandering around, addressing Fulanis, and thinking you are serving God.”
“Just because you are called doctor or Sheikh? Woe unto you, Ahmad Gumi,”.
“To you (Gumi) and others like Pantami, who is even a minister, huh? And still a cleric? Ask yourself! Oh clerics who savour the taste of power seasonings, ask yourselves,” he said.
