Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi, has disclosed that it is totally unfair to say that there are no difference between the activities of criminal herdsmen with those of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
According to Gumi, the criminal offences that are committed by IPOB members are far crueler than those done by bandits.
Gumi who appeared on Arise TV today June 23, alleged that IPOB members intentionally kill security operatives, while herdsmen only kidnap children to make money and don’t kill children.
“IPOB is attacking the police, the army, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other government institutions; killing our men in service.
And the herdsmen are kidnapping children not to kill them but to get money; so how can you compare somebody who is killing our gallant men in the armed forces directly to somebody who is kidnapping children to make money and not to kill them. Look, we need some fairness in what we are doing”
Sheik Gumi has been at the front line advocating for amnesty for armed bandits, who are constantly abducting people for huge ransom, claiming that they resorted to crime because they have been neglected.
