After the Nigeria Army had warned and disclosed “a viral video-clip showing the renowned and respected Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmed Gumi alleging that non-Muslim soldiers were responsible for the attacks against bandits,” Gumi told BBC News Pidgin that “there is a misunderstanding in the issues. When I speak about the religious issue in the army, I’m not referring to today’s army.
“The issue is from 2010-2015 when some people were in charge of the army and when a lot of bad things happened. It was during that time bombings happened everywhere.
“It happened in Jaji and we lost a popular Muslim general and it was God that saved me because they planted a bomb on me.”
Do you agree with Sheikh Ahmed Gumi’s responses?
