The attack in Kaduna that killed Muslim worshipers celebrating Maulud was not a mistake, according to Gumi

The controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, said a drone strike that killed more than 120 Muslim worshippers celebrating Mauld in Tudun Biri, in the Igabi local government area of Kaduna Province, was not a mistake.

Offering his weekly lectures at the Sultan Belo Mosque, Kaduna, Gummy averred that it is wrong to target women and children, including the elderly during any war.

He also said that if the first bomb dropped on people was a mistake as claimed, then what about the second bomb, which targeted people who evacuated their bodies after 30 minutes as claimed by villagers.

Gumi further added that it was God who exposed some of the atrocities committed by the military in the forest, and that innocent villagers had called on people to be victims of security shelling in the forest, but no one had heard of it.

he said;

“I kept telling you not to invite people who see war as a solution, but people refused to listen. Here it is now. War is never a joke, because it affects everyone. I warned you about this, but you keep saying they should be killed.

“It is you who will be killed. That bomb was intended to target the families of some people to kill their children and wives. I have been to a village where women and children were slaughtered in a remote forest.

“A lot of people were bombed. No one said anything until it approached the city. I’ve been saying that whatever is between us, whether it’s bandits or Boko Haram, there should be peaceful negotiations.”
