The State Security Service (SSS) has demanded the presence of popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, for questioning, HumAngle reports.
The invitation comes days after Gumi during an interview on Arise TV, which was aired on Wednesday, June 23, alleged that some security agents were colluding with terror gangs carrying out various acts of crimes across the country.
“These bandits, if you don’t know, are cooperating with a lot of bad elements in our security system. This is a business. So many people are involved, you’ll be so surprised,” Gumi had said
The spokesperson of the Nigerian Army, Onyema Nwachukwu, while reacting, said the allegation was a calculated attempt to denigrate the Nigerian military and undermine the sacrifices of “patriotic troops who are working hard to restore peace and stability across the country.”
“It is essential to remind ourselves that these same military, being accused of connivance, are the ones who recently put their lives on the line to rescue abductees of the Government Secondary School, Birnin Yauri, from kidnappers” he said
