The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has called for the immediate arrest of the self-proclaimed intermidiator between Nigerian Government and Terrorists, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi.
The group called for his arrest because the Islamic Cleric has been an influential in persistently defending the atrocious criminality of bandits and other marauders in Northern Nigeria.
Reasons for HURIWA Call for Sheikh’s Arrest
According to a statement issued by the Group, in via its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, they said that Sheikh Gumi has been outspoken as a “bandits’ sympathiser” over the years including demanding blanket amnesty for daredevil bandits and venturing into the forests of Zamfara, Katsina, and Niger State to hold discussion with the dreaded bandits turning the North-West zone to another place of sorrow, tears and blood.
Their decision to inform the federal government of the need to apprehend the Sheikh is due to the wake of the rising death toll recorded in the recent ill-fated Abuja-Kaduna train attack.
They described the attack as one coordinated by bloodthirsty terrorists which took place around 6pm on Monday, 2022.
It would be noted that the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, is a civil rights advocacy group, known for reacting to ill-fated societal activities.
