FG Invites Gumi For Questioning Over Kidnapping

The Federal Government has taken a decisive stance concerning Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, asserting that he is not exempt from the law and has been summoned for questioning regarding the surge in kidnappings in the North.

In the wake of Sheikh Gumi’s statements concerning the recent abduction of over 137 pupils and teachers in Kaduna State, the government has deemed it necessary to request his presence for interrogation.

Gumi’s offer to negotiate with the terrorists behind the abductions has prompted concerns among Nigerians, who question why he has not been called in for questioning.

Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, emphasized that Gumi, like any other individual, must be held accountable for his actions and statements.

“Government will spare no effort to obtain any necessary information to address our challenges. The security agencies are vigilant and active,” stated the minister.

He further stressed, “Sheik Gumi or any other individual is not above the law. If he provides constructive suggestions for the security agencies, they will be considered. However, if his statements appear reckless, he will face consequences.”

Idris concluded by affirming, “No one is above the law,” and revealed that Gumi has previously been questioned by security agencies regarding his remarks, particularly those affecting national security.
