Sheikh Gumi blames Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho for ‘Fulani debacle’ in Southeast

Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, has blamed the “Fulani debacle” in Southern Nigeria on pro-agitators, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho. Gumi said the kidnap incidents linked to some criminal elements among Fulanis residing in the Southwest, for which Igboho banked on to issue an eviction notice, is not sufficient reason to call for Nigeria’s break up. He spoke at a forum tagged: “Islam and the Special Role of Religious Leaders in Peacemaking in the Banditry Crisis in Northwest Nigeria” and a clip of the event was posted on his Facebook wall on Thursday. Gumi said: “So the Fulani debacle in Southern Nigeria, is capitalised on by the secessionist movements of Kanu and Igboho as one of the causes of the agitation for separation. “Evidentially, the crisis is another ...

To be sure, the Nigerian state that was negotiated before independence in 1960, the one that was birthed and named on 1st October 1960, is long dead. “It was mortally wounded in January 1966 and w...
