Primate Elijah Ayodele of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church has called Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a controversial Islamic scholar, a “Taliban in Nigeria.”
According to Ayodele, Gumi plans to utilize his disagreement with Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister Nyesom Wike to stir up religious strife in Nigeria.
According to a statement released by his media adviser Oluwatosin Osho, Ayodele has stated that the Islamic scholar needs to get checked out medically because it is clear something is wrong with him based on his unguarded words.
”People like Gumi are terrible powers that can destabilize Nigeria, the man is up to something,” Ayodele claims. To prevent this threat from destroying the country, President Tinubu must take every necessary action.
Gumi is just another Nigerian Taliban to me; I can’t tell the difference between him and the Taliban. I think he might benefit from having an MRI done. If he wants to avoid a religious crisis in the country, he shouldn’t utilize Wike’s problem to do it.
After the former governor met with an Israeli official in Abuja and discussed plans to engage with Israel in the field of security, Gumi called for Wike’s ouster as FCT Minister.
The Islamic professor had said that Christians were unable to be trusted with the safety of the country, and that Wike was a diabolical person.
