Biafra, Oduduwa Agitators Who Are For Nigeria’s Break-up Are “Useless Youths” —Sheikh Gumi |The Republican News

Sheikh Ahmad Gumi

Controversial Islamic Cleric, Shiekh Ahmad Gumi has called on the Nigerian populace to ignore people agitating for the break-up of Nigeria.

In a recent interview with BBC Pidgin report by POLITICS NIGERIA, Gumi described the agitators for Biafra, Oduduwa republic and Arewa as ‘Useless Youths’, adding that they were the same as ‘Boko Haram’.

Responding to a question on agitations for the division of Nigeria, Gumi said: “Who is coming to divide us? Let me give example, General Murtala Mohammed, the man from Kano, the head of state that was assassinated by Dimka, his wife is a Yoruba woman. So where do you want his children to go? if the nation is divided?”

“Are they going to be with the Yorubas or are they going to be with Hausas in the north?

“Look, let’s forget these Useless youth. These people agitating for Oduduwa and Biafra or Arewa or this Boko Haram, they are the same group of people.

“Majority of Nigerians want to stay in Nigeria, if they are in doubt, let’s make a referendum.”

    Lets have that referendum, it will settle all the matter. Gumi’s statement is a reflection of his mindset and that of his fulani kinsmen. Biafra and Oduduwa agitators are useless youths but bandits, killer herdsmen who have subjected the country to nightmare are not criminals. They deserve, ransom, negotiation and good treatment. That summarizes why Nigeria is overdue for break up

    Senator Abdullah’s statement is regretable. Where are Northerners killed in the south? The south has suffered and still suffering in the hands of killer herdsmen. Uncountable numbers have been butchered, raped, maimed, dehumanized etc. What has the north done?. South deserves apology and compensation from North
