Kaduna Islamic scholar, Sheik Ahmad Gumi has said that Late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegu Ojukwu, The Late Biafran Hero was a Bandit.
In an Interview with BBC PIDGIN, on the Kidnappings across the Northern states by Bandits, Gumi said the Bandits are demanding for freedom just Like Ojukwu did when he was alive.
Gumi justified the Kidnappings by Bandits, stating that they are only demanding for freedom, adding that the Kidnappings will soon end.
He said: “for me, I think kidnapping is better than to destroy villages and kill human beings.”
Sheik Gumi added, “to call bandits criminals is to fuel fire as it “hurt their feelings”.
“kidnapping, rape and killing of innocent people is crime, but to call Bandits in the north criminal, is to create war.”
He compared the bandits with Col. Ojukwu and Niger Delta Militants, adding that the Bandits should be addressed as militants as it is in Niger Deltans, so there will be peace across the Country.
Gumi added that Northern Bandits wants to bring development and education to the North.
