Sheikh Gumi Escaped Death In Kaduna by auwal87(m): 2:19am On Aug 16, 2012
The outspoken Sheikh Ahmad Gumi escaped death at the hand of suicide bombers after failing to reach him on their motorcycle.


Two people carrying explosives on motorbikes were killed by their own bombs in Kaduna yesterday, witnesses said, suggesting that the bombers targeted Islamic scholar Ahmad Gumi who recently criticised attacks blamed on the Boko Haram sect.
Only the bomb carriers died in the incident which happened at about 3.35pm on the busy Ali Akilu Road.
Witnesses said the bike-bombers appeared to be heading towards the Sultan Bello Mosque where hundreds of Muslims were gathering for Sheikh Gumi’s Ramadan Tafsir which was due to start in less than 30 minutes.
They said Gumi uses the same road to go to the mosque for the preaching session, which has been holding daily from 4pm since the beginning of the Muslim fasting month that ends at the weekend.
People who attend the Tafsir sessions said Gumi had recently criticised Boko Haram-linked suicide bombings and shootings, describing such acts as sacrilegious.
“(The bombers) were heading for Sultan Bello Mosque but before they reached the roundabout, we heard a loud explosion and three of them died instantly,” said a witness, Kaduna polytechnic student Idris Mustapha.
“Two were riding one of bikes while another person who we believe was part of them, was driving behind them. Then there was a loud blast,” he said.

You are a fool. You just read wht was been said in the thread and you arrre objaceting the fact that they were heading towards killing the man after the man had critisized them. Can't we just be honest for once for christ sake. I hate all these religion sentiments and hypocrites we have here on nairaland. You are such a Pig

Cheap propangada to make it look like Allah is working. What intelligence was conducted to arrive at dis? The sheikh is a pathetic boko haram apologist and only God knows d actual bomb destination. Thank God it prematurely detonated and killed its carriers.

This is just propaganda. Too many questions begging for answers. Did the suicide bombers confess before dying? Is it only the sheikh that uses that road? How did we arrive at the conclusion that the Sheikh was the target?

Tell dem bro,sometimes I think Nairaland is now a front for people to take out their unbridled anger against a bunch of misled nitwits who are against the tenets of islam itself...Boko Haram members also kill muslims so what are they fighting for?people should look @ things critically,I mean what did u go to school for when u start thinking like an illiterate..but sadly dis is what nairaland is turning to,its a pity.for them to be attacting people in the holy month of ramadan,its clearly obvious its not a religious war buh more of a political shindig and unfortunately some folks here will not see it that way,oh well...its only God that can judge who is really worshipping him.
Those of us that are muslims and christains are the only ones that have problems in life because we let religion cloud our thinking,them atheists don't have any wahala...God will help us#nuff said#
