Controversial Islamic scholar, Sheik Ahmad Gumi, has revealed those behind the Boko Haram sect.
Gumi told Sahara Reporters that the ongoing activities of terrorists in the country was a problem of the northern region and more specifically the Muslim population.
He said: “Kanuris, Fulanis and Hausas are the Boko Haram,” Gumi told SaharaTV.
The government initially thought it was a northern problem, leave them let them kill themselves.”
The muslim cleric advised that Islamic faithful in the north should tackle the issue with the backing of the government and the international community.
“Coordination between these three will lead to an end to Boko Haram,” he stated.
Gumi said that the Quran does not support violence, adding that “leniency beautifies everything and violence tarnishes everything”.
