IPOB More Dangerous Than Bandits — Sheikh Gumi

Popular Islamic Cleric, Ahmad Gumi has issued a controversial statement that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB are more dangerous than bandits.

The cleric also noted that it will be ‘unfair’ to make comparisons between the two groups.

Gumi made this assertion during an interview with AriseTV on Wednesday, June 23.

He argued, “IPOB is attacking the police, the army, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other government institutions; killing our men in service.

“The herdsmen are kidnapping children not to kill them but to get money; so how can you compare somebody who is killing our gallant men directly to somebody who is kidnapping children to make money and not to kill them. Look, we need some fairness in what we are doing,” Gumi stated.

It will be recalled that bandits have kidnapped over 800 school children across the north since December 2020. IPOB on the other hand launched its militia arm called Eastern Security Network (ESN) a few months ago.
