Balyesa State Governor, Douye Diri has queried President Muhammadu Buhari’s reason for the rearrest of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, while the popular Islamic Sheikh, Ahmad Gunmi is given freedom in the society.
The governor who spoke on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, said the Buhari led-government was to be fair to the IPOB leader.
According to him, Gumi had become somebody no one can touch, despite his link with the terrorising bandits in recent time.
“Two things I have to say. First, they should give him [Nnamdi Kanu] a fair hearing so that the trial will not be done in a way that everyone (especially the Igbo) will see it as oppression.
“Second, as we talk about the IPOB, what about the boys (bandits and herdsmen) organising killings in the North and in the whole country? What of Sheik Gumi? He has become somebody no one can touch. That’s very unfair.”
Recall that Gumi had recently been advocating the need for the Federal Government to negotiate with the bandits for peace to reign in the country.
