Bandits: Don’t be an advocate for the deceitful, Reno Omokri advises Sheikh Gumi


Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has advised popular Islamic scholar, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi not to” be an advocate for the deceitful” bandits.

Gumi had come under fire lately for his intervention/negotiation with bandits who have become a menace in the northern part of the country.

The latest strike by the bandits came on Wednesday when they killed s students and kidnapped at least 40 students and staff members of the Government Science School, Kagara, Niger State.

In a series of tweets to his 892.2K followers on Sunday, Omokri slammed Gumi for visiting bandits and not the victims of the banditry.

“We never see Gumi visiting victims of bandits. Or call for justice for those murdered by them. He went to Niger without paying condolence visit on the Kagara school. But he met terrorists and advocated for them. ‘Do not be an advocate for the deceitful’-Quran 4:105,” he said with a reference to the Quran.

Omokri, speaking further, opined that if Christian cleric, Bishop Mike Okonkwo, visits the Eastern Security Network – ESN and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) at will like Gumi does with bandits, he would have been arrested.

“Imagine that someone like Bishop Mike Okonkwo enters SE forests and interacts with ESN and IPOB at will, will he still be a free man? Yet, Sheikh Gumi enters our forests to meet bandits and killer herdsmen at will. Insecurity is not our main issue. Hypocrisy is!”
