The Student union wondered why Sheikh Gumi has not been arrested and treated like a criminal for his support for armed bandits who have been kidnapping and terrorising the country which they insisted was obvious.

The statement which was signed by the NANS Chairman, Kehinde Damilola Simeon, accused Gumi of justifying armed bandits and other associated criminality ravaging the Northern parts of the country.

The body expressed concern over Gumi’s claims that non-Muslim soldiers had carried out orchestrated killings in some communities, precipitating anger but, NANS has described Gumi’s claims as baseless and falsehood.

The group said the Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, who has been meeting with bandits in the forests of Kaduna, Zamfara, Katsina and Niger states know what the criminals are doing.
