Sheikh Gumi Denies Being Invited By DSS

Popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has debunked reports that he was either quizzed or invited for questioning by the Department of State Security Service (DSS) over his remarks against the military.

Speaking to Channels Television after presiding over a Jummat service at the Sultan Bello Mosque in Kaduna State on Friday, the Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, said all his interventions with bandits inside the forest were done in collaboration with the support of the government and security agencies, hence he did not commit any offence.

“Nobody Invited me for questioning or any arrest, I can say that categorically,” the Sheik said, adding, “since I ventured into the forest, I went there with full security, the police, with the knowledge of the DSS, traditional rulers and the Fulani leaders, I never went alone”.

He also insisted that he never made any disparaging remarks against the military during his recent live interview on national television.

According to him, there was nowhere in the TV interview that he categorically accused the entire military.

The DSS had earlier on Friday said it invited the cleric for questioning.
