Stay Away From Yoruba Land – Igboho’s Kinsmen To Gumi

Published

on

Kinsmen of Yoruba Nation agitator Sunday Igboho have warned controversial Islamic cleric Sheikh Ahmad Gumi to stay away from Yorubaland.

Recall Sheikh Gumi in a viral video recently, alongside Usman Yusuf, former Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), were seen near a signboard with the inscription ‘Muslim Grammar School, Modeke, Igboho’ in the hometown of embattled Igboho, where Gumi the cleric said

“Today, we visited this town, Igboho. We found this Muslim community and we can see some cattle grazing in their courtyard. This is a place where I think Nigerians need to understand that we need to live together. I’ve seen nothing here that can warrant people to agitate that they should be separated from our beloved country, Nigeria.

However in a rebuttal move through another video seen by newsheadlinesng a day ago, Igboho’s family have described Gumi’s visit to Igboho town as ‘suspicious’ and ‘insensitive’. Members of Igboho’s family led by Sheikh Abdul Raheem Aduanigba, Chief Imam of Yoruba in Ilorin with Igboho’s mother had visited the same spot Gumi visited in Igboho town to offer prayers to counter Gumi’s visit. Some words extracted from the counter visit video say: “We don’t know when Gumi came here, Igboho did not look at his wealth, he spent so much. He took care of everyone including Muslims.

“We pray for Igboho to be successfully released. God will make Igboho come back home safely and meet his mother. God kept Igboho safe to grant him long life. There is no peace in Nigeria. We have to be vigilant in Nigeria.”
One of Igboho’s allies, Alhaji Yusuf Saheed popularly called Ajikobi 1 said: “He (Gumi) just came here unaware, and used about 3-minutes. Igboho is a strong man, even despite the government intimidation, he still remains unruffled.”

48 years old Sunday Igboho is still being held in a prison in Cotonou Civil Prison after attempting to leave Nigeria through the neighbouring french speaking country.
