Famous Muslim cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has said that activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is more violent than Herdsmen.
Gumi, who is said to have connections with bandits, said Herdsmen commits less crime compared to IPOB.
Gumi disclosed this in an interview with Arise TV. He said that Herders only abduct kids for money while IPOB kill security officers.
“IPOB is attacking the police, army, Independent National Electoral Commission and other government institutions; killing our men in service.
And the herdsmen are kidnapping children not to kill them but to get money; so how can you compare somebody who is killing our gallant men directly to somebody who is kidnapping children to make money and not to kill them. Look, we need some fairness in what we are doing.”
Bandits have been responsible for the abduction of nearly 1000 school kids in the last six months.
In the Southeast, attack on government agents and properties have increased recently.
