Labelling Some Nigerians Terrorism Sponsors Rubbish — Gumi

Controversial Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has rubbished claim that some individuals of interest are sponsoring terrorism in Nigeria.

According to him, “These terrorists (bandits) don’t need any financial support from outside since they collect billions from kidnapping”.

This comes on the heels of the release of 15 entities, including nine individuals and six Bureau De Change operators and firms, allegedly involved in terrorism financing by the federal government of Nigeria.

Reacting, Sheikh Gumi who was featured on Daily Trust X Space on Wednesday, said it’s only the Court of law that has the right to declare anyone terrorism financier.

His words; “I think it’s high time the government took the bull by the horns, come together to see how to redirect these people (bandits)…

“Now they are looking for N1 billion for these children (kidnap victims) to be released. They financed themselves by kidnapping. I think it’s rubbish to just frame your political opponents as financing terrorism.

“No Nigerian will put his money in terrorism, we’re beyond that. These people are financing themselves by taking our children for ransom.

“So, how can we say some people are financing terrorism because there is a misunderstanding between them”.
