Sheikh Gumi Says Boko Haram Kidnapped Greenfield University Students & Not Bandits

An Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has claimed that Boko Haram terrorists are the ones behind the abduction of students of Greenfield University, Kaduna and not bandits as earlier reported. Media reports had previously linked the kidnapping to bandits operating in Kaduna state. However, Gumi, in an interview with AIT on Tuesday, May 4, 2021 insisted that findings show that the members of the terrorist group, Boko Haram, are responsible for the kidnapping.

When asked by the presenter if he is certain that Boko Haram was behind the abduction, Sheik Gumi said: ”Yes, really. When we tried to trace them and put some sense into them, the contact who is also a nomadic Fulani, threatened him. They said if he insists on them they were going to catch him and he will have to pay a ransom before he gets out.

“And the leader is from Jalingo. He is from Adamawa. He is not the local Fulani we have here. So this means that the North-eastern element is coming into this area and we have to move fast. We don’t have that luxury of time.”
