Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a prominent Islamic preacher who said in an Arise TV interview that Nigerian military facilitate bandits’ activities, has apparently been summoned by the Department of State Services for questioning.

According to the Voice of America’s Hausa program, which was monitored on Friday, the controversial Islamic cleric was summoned to the DSS office in Kaduna State.

However, in an interview with the VOA, Gumi’s spokesman, Tukur Mamu, denied the allegation against Gumi, stating there was nowhere in the TV broadcast that Gumi clearly blamed the entire military.

The spokesman explained that what Gumi said was that people have been saying and “even the soldiers have been saying that there could be some bad eggs amongst them”.
