The controversial Islamic teacher Sheikh Ahmad Abubakar Gumi has been advised by ex-military leaders from the Niger Delta not to say anything incendiary against Nyesom Wike, minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
According to Anaedoonline.ng, Gumi earlier this week warned against entrusting Nigeria’s national security to Christians and people from the South.
He made this statement while criticising Wike for having the Israeli ambassador to Nigeria visit him in his office and for wanting to work with Israel on Abuja’s security challenges.
Gumi asserted that any Muslims in the city with beards would be mistaken for Osama Bin Ladin and assassinated, accusing the FCT Minister of wanting to turn Abuja into a satellite of Tel Aviv.
Sheikh Gumi and his associates were forewarned against doing any measures that may incite the Niger Delta’s residents in a statement issued by the ex-militant leaders operating under the aegis of the Movement for the Sustainable Development of the Niger Delta (MSDND), and signed by its National Coordinator, Ayibatekena Olodin.
They urged President Bola Tinubu and Minister of Mines and Steel Development Dele Alake to take decisive action for resource control using the proceeds from gold and other mining operations in the North.
Former militants stated their belief that Sheikh Gumi, just like in the repulsive Boko Haram slaughter days, is supposedly standing in for organisations of dishonest people that put FCT into a terrible situation.
They characterised Gumi’s statement as demoralising and pointed out that certain people continue to utilise hate speech and inflammatory vocabulary in an effort to sow division among Nigerians by citing religion.
