Popular socio-political critic and analyst Reno Omokri reacts to the recent statement made by Islamic scholar and bandit advocator Sheikh Gumi who said bandits shouldn’t be called killer herdsmen because they have only killed a few and when they do they did so in revenge or accidentally.
Reno Omokri in his reaction to Sheikh Gumi’s statement while on Channel’s TV, that the Sheikh is not a negotiator but rather an enabler who is in support of a criminal syndicate.
Reno Omokri questioned the idea of Sheikh Gumi saying that when bandits attack communities and burn houses, it is done in revenge and it’s an ethnic issue, not a criminal issue.
Responding, Reno wrote:
‘We must be mad as a nation, when a character like Sheikh Gumi, will come on national TV and say herdsmen don’t kill, and if they do, it is “accidental”.
‘This is the same man caught on camera telling herdsmen that it is Christian soldiers that are killing them to “ignite crisis”. The man did not even apologise for telling that lie. Gumi is not a negotiator for herdsmen. He is an enabler!
“If I tell you a joke, you will laugh. If I repeat it, you may still laugh. If I repeat it a 3rd time, you will think I am mad. If we can’t keep laughing at the same joke, why does Nigeria keep crying for the same tragedy? Daily, herdsmen kill us and we just cry. Are we not mad?”
