Mamu Being Persecuted, Gumi Cries Out

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, lashed out yesterday at the Department of State Services (DSS) for what he branded the persecution of his associate, Malam Tukur Mamu.

Mamu was arrested in Cairo, Egypt on Tuesday at the prompting of the DSS, and deported to Nigeria immediately.

The organisation said subsequently that security agencies executed valid search warrants on Mamu’s residence and office during which incriminating materials, including military accoutrements and large amounts in different currencies and denominations as well as financial transaction instruments, were recovered.

But Gumi, in his first reaction to the development, said it was persecution akin to the ordeal of the late Sardauna of Sokoto Sir Ahmadu Bello and former Head of State, General Murtala Muhammed.

He described the night raid of Mamu’s house and office in Kaduna by operatives of DSS as unlawful, claiming that the security operatives who carried out the raids were not different from bandits who also break into people’s homes with guns without recourse to the law.

Mamu serves as Gumi’s spokesman and intermediary between bandits and their victims in the North West, his latest intervention being negotiating the release of some of the victims of the March 28 Abuja-Kaduna train attack from the den of gunmen.

Gumi, in a sermon he delivered in Kaduna on Thursday evening, said Mamu was innocent of the allegations against him by the DSS, and said his only offence was helping families of the hostages to negotiate release of their loved ones.
