Gumi confirms invitation by DSS, says he had productive interaction

Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has broken his silence after an invitation by the Department of State Services over his comments on the activities of bandits in the country.

According to him, the invitation was necessary, and he had a productive interaction with the security agents who queried him.

The Minister of Information and Orientation, Mohammed Idris, had confirmed that the prominent Islamic cleric was invited for questioning while noting that no one was above the law.

Reacting, Gumi, in a social media post titled, ‘Only one person is above the law: The Innocent!’ on Tuesday, 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.
