Femi Fani-Kayode, a former minister of aviation, has called on Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a renowned Islamic scholar, to stop pampering terrorists with his utterances, saying that they need to be sent to hell.
He made the call in a series of tweets on Friday while responding to suggestions given by Gumi, who recently said there was nothing wrong to pardon bandits in the country if coup plotters were pardoned.
According to Fani-Kayode, he believes that Gumi is no longer himself for advocating that bandits and terrorists should be pardoned and not addressed as criminals.
The former minister stated that Gumi’s position also means that the likes of the late Adolf Hitler, the German Nzai leader; the late Osama Bin Ladin, inaugural leader of Al-Qaeda; the late Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the first caliph od ISIS; and Abubakar Shekau, the current leader of Boko Haram, who were involved in the mass killing of innocent lives should as well be given a posthumous pardon.
Fani-Kayode urged the Islamic cleric not to push Nigeria into war, noting that his uncharitable, wicked, dangerous and self-serving contributions and remarks are enough for the country, which he said is in a fragile state.
“First he urges the terrorists to target Christian soldiers, then he said that the kidnapping of children from their schools by the same terrorists was a lesser evil and now he says this. Has Sheik Ahmad Gumi finally lost his mind. Is he in desperate need of medical attention?.
“Has he become the official spokesman for the terrorists that are slaughtering, tormenting, raping, mutilating and kidnapping our people all over the country? I am convinced that Gumi is no longer himself. Something has gone wrong with him. He is shrouded in darkness and deceit.
“Someone please tell him that we have had enough of these asinine, puerile, infantile, insensitive, uncharitable, wicked, dangerous and self-serving contributions and remarks. The country is already on the brink of war and fratricidal butchery: Gumi should not push us into it with his reckless provocations and deeply insensitive, callous, heartbreaking and insulting commentary.
“The terrorists he is defending are a living manifestation of pure and unadulterated evil and every single one of them deserves to be eliminated or brought to justice in a court of law for their crimes against humanity. Gumi, stop pampering bloodthirsty and blood lusting psychopaths and murderers.
“Anyone that targets innocent and defenceless women and children and kills them is the scum of the earth deserves to be sent to hell in a glorious hail of bullets,” he tweeted.
