Bishop Kukah: Invite Gumi For Rubbing Elbows With Bandit Terrorists – Christian Youths To DSS



The Department of State Services, DSS has been asked to invite popular Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, for interrogation for consistently rubbing shoulders with bandit terrorists. 

Naija News reports that the call was made by a group of Christian youths under the aegis of the Christian Association of Nigeria (Youth Wing) in response to an invitation of the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, for questioning by the secrete police.

DSS has earlier summond Kukah for questioning over his comments which berated the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Reacting on Sunday through a statement by the President, YOWICAN, Belusochukwu Enwere, said the Catholic Bishop has committed no offence to warrant his invitation for questioning.

Enwere said that Bishop Kukah’s comment on the state of the nation and critics of the Buhari government was right.

The YOWICAN president said the incumbent government should channel its energy in the fight against terrorism and to liberate the country against all forms of criminal activities.

The group vowed that it will mobilise Christian youths across the country to answer DSS invitation of Bishop Kukah, noting that the secret police have not only invited the cleric but the entire believers.

Enwere said, “The attention of YOWICAN has been drawn to the purported invitation extended to Bishop Hassan Kukah, Bishop of Sokoto Diocese. Bishop Kukah committed no offence; rather the government should channel her energy in the fight to liberate the country from terrorists and bandits.

“Recently, more than 200 people were killed in Zamfara State and villagers displaced. This is disheartening indeed. We will mobilise all Christian youth across the country to honour this invitation.

“The DSS has extended her invitation to us, not Bishop Kukah, and we will honour it. The DSS should first invite Ahmad Gumi for questioning for interfacing with bandits.”

Naija News understands that Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has in several interviews, advised people in the terrorised North-West of Nigeria on how they can live in peace with the armed bandits occupying their forests.

Gumi is understood to have claimed that people could develop mutual relationship with the bandits without being harmed.

Enwere berated the inaction of the DSS and the Buhari government on the Islamic scholar’s ‘easy access’ to bandit hideouts, noting that Gumi has been “fraternising with the bandits and he has been working freely without any invitation from the DSS or police”.

He said, “The DSS has invited Bishop Matthew Kukah for questioning, days after the prominent Catholic priest ramped up his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari for failing to curb nationwide insecurity.

“Bishop Kukah had slammed President Buhari in his Christmas sermon, saying the Nigerian leader has failed to show competence as terrorists, bandits and other violent criminals embark on a coordinated and relentless rampage across the country.”
