Omokri made the remark while stressing that Gumi was an inspiration to terrorists.

In a tweet, the former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan wondered why the Federal Government was prosecuting secessionists like Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho while Gumi is a free man.

“Sheikh Gumi never speaks for the victims. But when terrorist bandits are affected, he speaks.

“How long shall a government that is after Igboho and Kanu continue tolerating the PR work Gumi is doing for terrorists bandits?

“Gumi is an inspiration to these terrorists,” Omokri tweeted.

This is coming after Gumi had warned that it would be dangerous to declare bandits as terrorists.

The Kaduna-based Islamic scholar had said making such declaration would come with a price.

Gumi said foreign terrorists would radicalize the bandits if proscribed by the Federal Government.
