SHEIK GUMI is not above the law, if he makes reckless statements he will be reprimanded - MOHAMMED IDRIS

Monday, March 25, 2024
 –Minister of information and orientation, Mohammed Idris has said that controversial Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, has been invited for questioning over his comments on the activities of bandits in the country.

Addressing state house correspondents on Monday, March 25, the minister commented on Gumi's claim of federal government acting recklessly by tagging those yet to be tried in court as terrorism financiers. The Kaduna-based cleric had made the claim in reaction to the identities of 15 entities released by the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) for alleged terrorism.

Reacting to the claim, Idris said; 

“The government will stop at nothing to get any kind of information that is required to solve our problems. The security agencies are up and doing.

“Sheik Gumi and any other individual are not above the law, if he has suggestions that are good enough and that are constructive enough for the security agencies to take, they will take.

“But if they think that he is also making some statements that appear to be reckless, he will also be reprimanded. There is nobody above the law. Let me put it here. And I’m aware that he has also been a guest of security agencies to answer questions.

“When you make remarks, especially those that border on our national security it is incumbent on our national security to think further, and they are doing just that, no one is above the law.”
