The invitation came after a dispute between Gumi and the Nigerian Army, according to a report by VOA Hausa.
Peter Afunanya, a spokesman for the SSS, has yet to respond to a request for confirmation of the arrest.
Remember how Gumi accused the Nigerian military of aiding and abetting banditry in the north during an appearance with ARISE TV?
This was mentioned by the Islamic cleric in response to an inquiry about the nationality of the bandits terrorizing the North.
“In our security system, these bandits are working with a lot of criminal elements. Banditry is a legitimate business. How are weapons being moved across borders without being intercepted by security personnel? These weapons cannot be brought in without the knowledge of some security personnel.
In the military, there are people who profit from this. He stated, “The system needs to be completely overhauled.”
“It is vital to remember ourselves that this same military, which is being accused of connivance, just put their lives on the line to rescue abductees from the Government Secondary School, Birnin Yauri from kidnappers,” the military responded.
“While the NA will not attempt to excuse the likelihood of black sheep among its ranks, it must be declared unequivocally that any type of sabotage or aiding and abetting the enemy by any personnel will not be tolerated,” the statement continued.
The army stated that its troops always followed engagement regulations and protected fundamental human rights.
