Biafra, Oduduwa agitators not different from Boko Haram


Popular Islamist, Ahmad Gumi, says those agitating for Biafra and Oduduwa Republics are not different from Boko Haram.

The Islamic Scholar spoke during an interview with BBC Pidgin on the situation of insecurity across Nigeria.

Gumi said the majority of Nigerians want a united nation where peace and equity abound.

According to Gumi: “These people agitating for Oduduwa, Biafra or Arewa are all the same group of people with Boko Haram.

“So, all these youths that are making noise, whether Abubakar Shekau of Boko Haram, Nnamdi Kanu of IPOB and their Oduduwa counterpart, they are just a tiny minority of Nigerians using ethnic, archaic and retrogressive sentiments to destabilise the nation.

“Biafra is a nuisance just like Boko Haram. You think every northerner is a Boko Haram, militant?”
