Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani reacts to video of prominent Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi allegedly accusing Christian soldiers of being the ones involved in criminal activities.
In the video which has gone viral on social media, Gumi was heard saying “What I want you people to understand is, soldiers that are involved in most of the criminalities are not Muslims. You know, soldiers have Muslims and non-Muslims. The non-Muslims are the ones causing confusion just to ignite crisis.”
Reacting to this, Sani stated that referencing soldiers according to their religious affiliation is a condemnable act. He added that it is toxic and divisive, as the security challenges in the country demands a united action and national solidarity. #news
