Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has confirmed that the Department of State Services (DSS) invited and questioned him over his comments on banditry in the country.
Gumi said the invitation was necessary and he had a productive interaction with the security operatives.
LEADERSHIP reports the Minister of Information and Orientation, Mohammed Idris, had on Monday confirmed that Sheikh Gumi had been invited for questioning while stressing that no one is above the law.
However, while publicly reacting to the development via a post on social media on Tuesday, titled; ‘Only one person is above the law: The Innocent!’ Sheikh Gumi wrote: “Last night, I got many frantic calls from well wishers and journalists about a news item that I was interviewed by security. There is absolutely no cause for alarm.
“Yes, we had a productive interaction on how to curb banditry as we are all trying – each in his own sphere – to tackle the monster bedevilling the nation. There was no animosity but courtesy and full respect.
“We all need as a nation to unite and work in synergy to achieve an everlasting peace. I thank you for your concern. May Allah continue to protect us all from all evil. Amin.”
