Sheik Gumi Explodes: Nigerian Govt Is Fighting Muslims By Sending Troops To Mali, Labels Ihejirika SS&SE COAS

Published

on

Sheikh GumiProminent Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Mahmoud Gumi has raised an eyebrow over the Nigerian government’s decision to send troops to fight on the side of France against so-called “Islamic terrorists” in Mali which he warns “…can seriously be dangerous for the nation and more so for the government.”

In a post Facebook post yesterday, the cleric argued that there was no justifiable reason to send troops.

He wrote:

“Today Nigerian troops are committed in Mali to fight ‘Islamic terrorists’ without intellectually looking at the repercussion of such an adventure. We all know that the ‘War against terror’ which Islam also fights can easily be turned into war against Islam. There is a thin line between the two. And if caution is not taken, the situation can seriously be dangerous for the nation and more so for the government.

“One thing is very clear. No nation on earth can fight Islam and succeed.” Sheik Gumi then went down memory lane to recount the Soviet Union’s fight against the Mujahideen for almost 13 years in Afghanistan which left the former soviet power disintegrated. Also, he recalled how the U.S was warned against invading Iraq, “a sovereign nation” , and noted that “the end result has been stringent monitoring and restriction of the flow of money in and out of the country. A self-imposed umbilical stenosis, a self-imposed strangulation. Nobody will again trust the USA, therefore people now prefer Asia for their business, medical care and even education.”

Bringing the experiences of those two countries’ to bear on the Nigerian government’s decision to send troops to Mali, Sheik Gumi said:

“As for Nigeria, we can see a parallel when in the late 60’s Maj. Nzeogwu assassinated the Northern premier and the Biafran War ensued. Ojukwu, in his declaration of war,said bluntly that he was fighting Islam and the menace of Arabs which he claimed. The end results were that he destroyed lives, went into exile and to date Biafra ceases to exist except of course in the mind of its proponents.

“And worse still for him, Islam has reached the shores of the Delta. This brief description of a chain of events should be a clear counsel to people leading Nigeria today; no one can fight Islam or the Muslims and succeed. It is futile to attempt it. They will only destroy their own lives and cause untold hardship to others. They will be cursed not only by people they injured but by their own people as Bush Jr is regarded now in America. Therefore if the government has such plans or are deceived by some Islamaphobes in their circles they should reverse their policies immediately.

“There is no border sharing between Nigeria and Mali. There is Niger republic, Burkina Faso and Togo in between. All these nations did not report terrorism and yet suddenly we read in the news that ‘the Army Chief of Staff (COAS) Azubuike Ihejirika, who did not offer evidence, claimed that terrorists trained in Mali had already arrived on Nigerian shores. See: http://saharareporters.com/news-page/‘terrorists’-mali-seen-nigeria-…, Posted: January 17, 2013 – 22:19.

“If what he said is true, then Nigeria is unnecessarily plunging itself into a War that will have a grievous consequence on our security without any foreseen benefit.

“Let us encourage the Malians to tackle their insurgency peacefully, and not by taking sides. If however, the SS&SE (COAS) wants to use the volatile situation to build on what his predecessor Azazi implanted, then we leave him to posterity. Time will tell. All we do is to urge Muslims to be calm, prayerful and watchful.”

    Look at Algeria, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, Punjab India, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Mali, Northern Nigeria. What do they have in common? Religion should be for peace and not for killing innocent people. No body created a human being and no body has the right to take away the life of another human being. It pains me when people use religion as a cover for their homicidal tendencies. A murderer is a murderer even if he commits murder in the name of Krishna, pope, bishop or whatever he worships. Let love reign for the survival of humanity.

    in as much as I love respecting other people,s rights, religion, and believes. Any action that had to do with killing other humans is totally wrong. I think the real moslems should start to speak up against these so called moslem sadists. If you allow the voice of the wicked ones to be heard always and you keep quiet then all of you will be lumped together. The shiek is just being irresponsible with his statement.

    Take a look at the world today, what is known with Islam: violence, killings, nothing else! Killing innocent people struggling to survive on their own. Why can’t they just leave the rest of the world that are not muslims alone and make their lives useful. Worse they are so poor, why can’t they be busy making their living conditions better as every other normal human? If I were a muslim I would be ashamed because this religion has brought nothing but pain and suffering on the rest of the world, nothing positive, nothing good. We are all humans please muslims make una leave us alone. There is a saying everyday 4 the thief one day for the owner! There is a God in heaven and he is the owner of life and soon he would rise up and a force greater than islam will destroy those who have no regard for human life, look at this one here talking nonsence you all will be put to shame very soon, because una cup done full.

    A lot of contributors on this and other similar discourse including some misguided muslims are doing so out of ignorance or sheer miss-chief. As for the agnostics athiests and christian contributors we should not expect anything less,due to their preconcieved mind set of islamaphorbia and hate preaches by their clergy against islam. If anybody should touch our revered,honest and learned scholar for merely speaking the truth as it is,then the nation will be on the verge of a catastrophe of unimaginable proportion. Be aware and rest assured that no good muslim will take it lying low.

    In the world today, Islam is fastest growing religion…you muslims are poor, the life of christains is deceiptful one, just dangling in a pitch darkness, they allow the life of this world to deceive them

    Allah said “O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should feared and die not except in the state of Islam”
    God has taken Islam above any other religions..

Oke

Oke

Information Nigeria recalls a graphics designer identified as Oke, was killed hours after tweeting “Nigeria will not kill me” on Wednesday.

It was reported that the young man had passed away after he was hit by a stray bullet.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
