Bandits: Gumi reacts to allegation that he benefits from ransom

 


Controversial Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, on Friday dismissed the insinuation that he benefits from the proceeds of banditry.

Gumi described the allegation against him as unfair because he would never contemplate doing such.

Speaking with newsmen, the controversial cleric said his allegiance to the government, security agencies and the nation should not be doubted.

Gumi is well known to have access to some bandits ravaging the Northern part of the country.

Bandits have made education a big challenge in the North as schools are beginning to close down due to their activities.
