CAN’s General-Secretary, Barrister Joseph Daramola, recently revealed this in a statement, and Nigerians has been reacting.
According to him, Gumi should immediately withdraw the unpatriotic and divisive utterances credited to him in the interest of peace and unity of Nigeria.
He added that anyone who says Christian soldiers are the ones attacking armed bandits does not want the war against terrorism to end in the country.
His words, “We express our pain and disappointment in one Islamic leader, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi over his alleged profiling of military operatives recently while addressing some bandits in Tegina forest, a border town between Niger and Kaduna States.”
“We call on Gumi to immediately withdraw the unpatriotic and divisive utterances credited to him in the interest of peace and unity of this country.”
“If anyone said it was the Christian soldiers who are attacking armed bandits, that person does not wish this country well and he doesn’t want the war against terrorism and banditry to end in victory.”
“Gumi’s so-called audio evidence cannot be taken seriously because audio evidence can be deliberately arranged to make a point.”
“However, we still want to believe that Sheikh Gumi was quoted out of context. But if the remark credited to him were true, then, the unity and peace of the country are being threatened by the sentimental statement of this cleric. Such a grave allegation is evil, divisive, unpatriotic, ill-wind and reprehensible.”
“We have not heard the Presidency react to this dangerous statement as they are supposed to do, cautioning this cleric who has thrown caution to the wind.”
“President Muhammadu Buhari’s prolonged silence is tantamount to an endorsement of Gumi’s dangerous statement.”
“If what Gumi reportedly said was attributed to a Christian leader, the security operatives would have invited him or declared him wanted and the Presidency would have publicly condemned that Christian leader.”
