Gumi only raises his voice in favor of these bandits whenever they commit their heinous acts–According to RUN

We implore the Chief of Defense Staff to focus on Gumi, perhaps even make him wanted - According to RUNSheikh Abubakar Gumi is an Islamic preacher in Kaduna. According to the Vanguard, he has ties to terrorist groups. As a result, the civil society organization Rising-Up for a United Nigeria (RUN) has urged that the Department of State Security (DSS) profile and arrest the cleric as soon as possible. The group said in a statement on Sunday that Gumi’s continuous support of terrorists and outlaws threatens national security and the rule of law. The Convener and Secretary of RUN, Amb. Solomon Adodo and Mallam Suleiman Musa, raised serious worries about Gumi’s behavior, calling him not only a sympathizer but also a key player in bandit operations. CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>

Gumi’s recent comments, including comparing the Niger Delta situation to the North’s banditry crisis and advocating for similar deals offered to militants, have drawn severe criticism from RUN. They condemned these remarks as tantamount to declaring war on the Nigerian state, questioning the message sent to law-abiding citizens if criminal behavior is rewarded. The group extended its call for Gumi’s arrest to the Defense Headquarters, urging them to consider preserving national territorial integrity by taking action against the cleric.

RUN argued that Gumi’s arrest is crucial to fully understand his involvement with criminals, particularly in Kaduna, and prevent potential erosion of public trust in security forces. They emphasized the need for decisive action to address longstanding issues of kidnappings and banditry, fearing that failure to act could undermine security efforts and exacerbate instability in affected regions.

“His defiance and offer to act as an intermediary for terrorists, especially after the abduction of over 280 schoolchildren from Kuriga, shows his true colors. This type of behavior cannot be tolerated under the new administration.” CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
