Believers in the course of Sunday Igboho, the mother and kinsmen have cautioned the popular Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi from stealing into Yoruba land.

They described his secret visit to the town of the Yoruba Nation activist as suspicious, insensitive too.

Igboho, the 48-year-old agitator, who was first detained at the Brigade économique et financière (BEF), at Prison Civile de Cotonou — Cotonou Civil Prison.

Gumi was reported to have stood with Usman Yusuf, a former Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), just directly at the front of a signboard that bears the caption, “Muslim Grammar School, Modeke, Igboho. This is according to the video viral online on the 7th day of September.

Gumi during the visit maintained that with what he had seen, secession is totally needless for the Yoruba people of the southwestern part of Nigeria.

“Today, we visited this town, Igboho. We found this Muslim community and we can see some cattle grazing in their courtyard. This is a place where I think Nigerians need to understand that we need to live together. I’ve seen nothing here that can warrant people to agitate that they should be separated from our beloved country, Nigeria,” Gumi said.

In another viral video that surfaced, Sheik Abduraheem Aduanigba, the Yoruba Chief Imam in Ilorin led so many others to Igboho’s town to meet with the mother of the activist.

They made for the venue where Gumi’s video was shot and also prayed to avert any evil motive behind the visit.

He said: “We don’t know when Gumi came here, Igboho did not look at his wealth, he spent so much. He took care of everyone including Muslims.

“We pray for Igboho to be successfully released. God will make Igboho come back home safely and meet his mother. God keep Igboho safe to grant him long life. There is no peace in Nigeria. We have to be vigilant in Nigeria.”
One of Igboho’s allies, Alhaji Yusuf Saheed popularly called Ajikobi 1 said: “He (Gumi) just came here unaware, and used about 3-minutes. Igboho is a strong man, even despite the government intimidation, he still remains unruffled.”
