Herdsmen Only Kidnap Children For Money, They Are Better Than IPOB – Gumi

Popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has stated that it is unfair to compare the activities of criminal herdsmen with those of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

He expressed that herdsmen’s crimes weigh significantly lesser than those of IPOB.

He stated this on Arise TV on Wednesday.

The cleric called for “fairness” in the comparison between the two groups, saying one “is killing our gallant men” while the other is “kidnapping children to make money and not to kill them.”

“IPOB is attacking the police, the army, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and other government institutions; killing our men in service,” he said.

”And the herdsmen are kidnapping children not to kill them but to get money; so how can you compare somebody who is killing our gallant men directly to somebody who is kidnapping children to make money and not to kill them. Look, we need some fairness in what we are doing.”
