Controversial Islamic cleric Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has reacted to the warning directed at him by the Nigerian Military.
Talking with DAILY POST, Gumi described the Nigerian Military’s assertion as a warning and never a warning.
Recall that the Nigerian Military had warned Gumi and different “opinion retailers” in Nigeria in opposition to their utterances.
The Military had mentioned it doesn’t deploy troops alongside non secular or ethnic traces, opposite to Gumi’s statements to bandits that Christian troopers have been chargeable for their deaths.
An announcement by the Director, Military Public Relations, Mohammed Yerima warned Nigerians to desist from making remarks able to creating unhealthy blood.
The warning was issued following remarks credited to Gumi alleging that Christian troopers have been particularly attacking bandits within the North.
Nevertheless, Gumi confused that he was misunderstood.
In line with Gumi: “One, I didn’t see it as a warning however a phrase of warning, I used to be misunderstood.”
Recently, Gumi has been negotiating with armed bandits terrorizing some states within the North.
The Islamic cleric had urged the federal authorities to grant amnesty to bandits prepared to put down their arms.
