Senator Shehu Sani reacts to video of Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi allegedly accusing ‘non-muslim’ soldiers of being the ones involved in criminal activities (video)

Former lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani has responded to a video of a prominent Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi allegedly accusing non-muslim soldiers of being responsible for the criminal activities.

In the video which has gone viral on social media, Gumi was heard saying “What I want you people to understand is, soldiers that are involved in most of the criminalities are not Muslims. You know, soldiers have Muslims and non-Muslims. The non-Muslims are the ones confusing just to ignite crisis.”

Responding to this, Sani pointed out that referencing soldiers according to their religious affiliation is a condemnable act. He added that it is toxic and divisive, as the security challenges in the country demands a united action and national solidarity.

The former lawmaker tweeted; 

Referencing our soldiers as Muslims or Christians is a condemnable act.Its divisive & toxic.The security challenges in our country demands a united action and national solidarity.Sowing the seeds of religiosity in the minds of our troops on the frontlines is noxious & dangerous.
