Divine Eches: Sheikh Gumi Promoting Banditry In Northern Nigeria by okrote4real: 8:43pm On Sep 16
The Christian organisation demanded a thorough probe on the activities of Sheikh Gumi, expressing concerns that the security crises and banditry in the north would be prolonged as the Almajiri system continued unchecked.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has accused Kaduna State-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, of being responsible for the increasing activities of bandits in the northern part of the country.

The Christian organisation demanded a thorough probe on the activities of Sheikh Gumi, expressing concerns that the security crises and banditry in the north would be prolonged as the Almajiri system continued unchecked.

The Imo State CAN Chairman, Rev Dr Divine Eches, raised the concerns in an interview in Abuja ahead of its 45th anniversary and Founder’s Day scheduled for Friday in Owerri.

He advised that the Nigerian government should caution Sheikh Gumi whose utterances, he said, had emboldened the bandits, thereby promoting their inhumane acts in the North.

He maintained that except drastic measures were taken to curb the Almajiri system, banditry would remain in northern Nigeria for a long time with devastating effects on the socio-economic lives of the people.

He said, “You can’t have the Almajiri system of life and government in the last 40 years in our nation, bringing up people without any trace to families, hometowns or nationalities. These children are scattered all over the streets, without you knowing that someday, they would leave the streets and go to the bush where they would begin to do the trade of kidnapping.

“Also, you can’t, in a sane nation, have the likes of Sheikh Gumi, a religious scholar, going about promoting banditry and you don’t think that this will continue. Yet, that is what we are seeing today. We are not seeing anything more than what we have planted.

"We allowed this thing (insecurity) to continue and it is now going to consume the nation if drastic measures are not put in place to take them (Almajiri) out of the streets. Give them a sense of belonging, put them in school, and help them realise their potential.

"These bandits were the Almajiri who used to be in front of our houses and begging. Howbeit, we are praying and that is why God is still sustaining our nation. I trust God will continue to sustain us in Jesus name."

Dear Gumi, these assertions were never allegations,
they are facts.

Whatever CAN says to Gumi, true or not, he will only view it as an enemy's threat and react accordingly.

My surprise is why Muslims who claim the Terrorists are not Muslims would never sanction Gumi

For Bleep sake Sultan the head of the Muslim council is yet to place Fatwa on Gumi and have his mosque sealed from giving Terrorists sermons

Infact all Boko Haram and bandits attend mosques, store weapons in the mosque, yet no clamp down

Such ignorant statement from CAN. Are they trying to say that they don't know that all foolanis – including the almajiris in Aso Rock, are part and parcel of this whole banditry/terrorism thing?

Is it a mere coincidence that Bulhari ensured that every office of worth in this country is headed by a fulani person.

CAN, southerners as a whole, should keep lamenting while these foreigners take them unawares.

His romance with bandits is very glaring. He believes only dialogue can end banditry in the North and the dialogue must come through him grin

Always looking for chance to unleash ur religious bigotry. If Gumi is speaking for Northern Muslims then it's true that all Yeasterners terrorists have the full backing of Yeasterners because they don't condemn it?
Gumi is trying to show Govt that the bandits were cheated by the system which forced them to banditry and I also believed it but can never justify nor accept his approach for requesting amnesty for them. Our problem is too much fanaticism in our affairs.
Gumis isn't supported by most Northerners go to FB pages where his matter is posted and see Northerners response but not just mere presume allegations. Most southerners want to see us stoning or insulting our elites as a sign of disagreement to their opinion, but this isn't in our culture since there are institutions responsible for dealing with any case then we shouldn't take law into our hands.
Gumis is so stupid in his style because of his long and personal enmity for PMB but it is clear that Gumi, Igboho and Kanu are all serving PDP to perpetuate insecurity, and ethno-religious tension in the country, no doubt wether directly or indirectly, knowingly or unknowingly!

Abokey can you tell me the system that ever cheated bandits and northern youths?

You don't produce the oil feeding this nation, the Niger Delta youths who does yet have their livelihood (Fishing) destroyed do not take to banditry.

The Zamfara gold and resources in your region is for only northern youths

The farm products you bring people pay money for it

The cows you carry you don't pay tax but free to destroy people's land

Is it not high time government houses in the north are shut with daily protests on the level of crimes in the north

Is protest not legal in the constitution, but your culture allows you to fu*k 6 year old Abi?

Your culture allows you to breed like rats and dump them on the streets to become the same bandits?

I forgot if you Abokeys are too harsh on your governors seeking change it would affect your main culture of breeding almajiris, and children who beg with plates for food

Is Sheik Gumi not under the Muslim council, can he not be sanctioned and suspended from it?

If the Muslim council is in bed with terrorists can fellow Muslims not make a mere recommendation for his suspension?

What a few Abokeys say on Facebook makes no difference after all some still see him as political rival and say things from that angle without disagreeing on "attack on crime is attack on north"


Below is a picture of Northern Muslims doing rally to support SARS simply because there was an Endsars in the south

Apparently Northerners are interested in what happens in their region and can participate in a process to either supporting or castigating but they would always choose the side of crime either with silence or with direct support rally

This is not a defence.

It is Buhari and APC that's in power, let them pick the terror supporter Gumi, and if they know this pix you are masturbating over is enough to show Atiku is his accomplice, then pick the perennial presidential candidate also.
