Christian Youths Stand With Kukah Following DSS Invitation


The youth wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria has called on the Department of State Security Services to invite Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, for his relationship with bandits. This was after the Catholic Archbishop of Sokoto Diocese, Fr. Matthew Kukah, was invited by the security organization following his criticisms of the Buhari-led administration.

In a statement titled, ‘We will mobilize Christian youths across the country to answer DSS invitation of Bishop Kukah’, the Christian youth leader, Belusochukwu Enwere, said, “The attention of YOWICAN has been drawn to the purported invitation extended to Bishop Hassan Kukah, Bishop of Sokoto Diocese. Bishop Kukah committed no offense; rather, the government should channel her energy in the fight to liberate the country from terrorists and bandits.

“Recently, more than 200 people were killed and villagers displaced in Zamfara State. This is disheartening indeed. We will mobilise all Christian youths across the country to honour this invitation.

“The DSS has extended her invitation to us not Bishop Kukah and we will honour it. The DSS should first invite Ahmad Gumi for questioning for interfacing with bandits.

“Controversial Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, has advised people in the terrorised North West of Nigeria on how they can live in peace with the armed bandits occupying their forests.”

Enwere added that Gumi had said that a mutual relationship can be developed with bandits without being hurt. He insisted that the Islamic cleric has been “fraternizing with the bandits and he has been working freely without any invitation from the DSS or police."

He continued, “The DSS has invited Bishop Matthew Kukah for questioning days after the prominent Catholic priest ramped up his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari for failing to curb nationwide insecurity.

“Bishop Kukah had slammed President Buhari in his Christmas sermon, saying the Nigerian leader has failed to show competence as terrorists, bandits and other violent criminals embark on a coordinated and relentless rampage across the country.”

Kukah had spoken about the insecurity situation in the country over the years, blaming Buhari for not showing enough concern to the plight of the people. He also noted that despite his criticisms of the president, he still picks his calls often.
