Former Minister of Aviation Femi Fani-Kayode has berated Sheikh Ahmad Gumi for tackling Biafra and Oduduwa Republic agitators.
In an interview with BBC Pidgin on Saturday, the Islamic cleric, who compared the agitators to the Boko Haram terrorists, described them as “miscreants”.
Gumi said they are not different from the Boko Haram sect terrorists in the North.
The cleric said that the majority of Nigerians want a united nation where peace and equity abound and not a country divided along ethnic and religious lines
Gumi also faulted the activities of the agitators who are only pushing their own different ideologies and interests in order to cause chaos in the country.
Reacting in a post on his Twitter handle, Fani-Kayode said no right thinking person can compare IPOB and Oduduwa to Boko Haram.
He wrote: “How can any right-thinking and sane person compare NnamdiKanu and those that want Biafra and those in the numerous self-determination groups in Yorubaland that want Oduduwa to Abubakar Shekau, Boko Haram or the Fulani terrorists?
“Sheik Gumi messed up badly. I used to respect him.”
