But responding to the remarks, the NDC expressed concern about the content of the “recent negative broadcast” by Sheikh Gumi against the FCT Minister, Nyesom Wike.

According to a statement by Mudiaga Ogboru, the NDC National Spokesperson, on Friday, “We find it incredulous that ethnoreligious extremists and terrorists sympathizers like Sheikh Gumi have been allowed by Nigeria’s security agencies to run amok and continue to push extremist views targeted at people of South-South extraction of Nigeria without caution.

“The recent utterances and subtle threats from these ethnoreligious bigots aimed at Minister Nyesom Wike since his appointment to head the FCT Ministry must not be brushed under the carpet. We would like to state unequivocally that Nyesom Wike just like every other Nigerian has the right to head any Ministry, including the FCT which was built from scratch with resources from the Niger Delta region where Mr Wike is from.

“While the Niger Delta Congress (NDC) takes what has now amounted to a threat of life against Nyesom Wike and other southerners seriously, we call on the security agencies to as a matter of urgency reign in Sheikh Gumi and others like him who feel they are untouchable and continue to incite violence against Southerners. Failure to do so will indeed prove that they are untouchable and will set the tone for how the different constituent parts of Nigeria, most especially the Niger Delta region, will respond to these excesses going forward.”
