A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has lambasted a controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi over his recent statement, where he defended bandits.
Fani-Kayode, who spoke on Twitter, said Gumi had been taking delight from all evil deeds of the bandits and killer herdsmen in the country.
He also accused the Kaduna based cleric of being the mouthpiece of the criminals.
While sharing the video of the cleric, the former minister wrote: “Listen to Sheik Ahmad Gumi, the unrepentant and unapologetic ‘lover of bandits’ and the Chief Spokesman for the foreign, Fulani terrorists that come into our country from other shores and kidnap, torture and slaughter our men, women and children.
“He continues to demand that the terrorists must be paid huge ransoms and must be granted amnesty. My question: which of the seven circles of hell did this creature come from?”
Recall that Gumi had been advocating amnesty for bandits, saying it is the way to end attacks by the group and encourage peace in the nation.
