The antecedents of the Gumi family can be traced back to when a Nigerian-born automobile engineer who tried to denote a bomb wired to his underwear aboard an American flight was caught. When he was arrested, they found out that he communicated with Gumi, that doesn’t mean though.
“His father also came out and made a statement that no Southerner can be President of Nigeria, I was offended and told him ‘no no no’. I told him and others that a President can come from anywhere. I opposed them, at the end of the day, a Southerner became Nigeria’s President after his death.
“I’m not against his son, but anybody living with bandits must prove to be a saint. He can’t go there alone. There must be intelligence officers following him, the army, the police ought to follow him there to know all he has been saying.
“So Gumi is not somebody for any human being to rely on. That brings the case of El-Rufai from Kaduna. For any human being, head of government for that matter to pay bandits so that they can leave us alone is sad. That means he is not fit to be a leader. It’s never done anywhere in the world.
“As I’m talking now, I don’t respect Gumi and El-Rufai, they are not helping Nigeria at all. We don’t want to see them, they should go anywhere they like.”
Indeed, Gumi had stated he was accompanied to the hideouts of bandits by safety operatives.
This has made many Nigerians to ask why safety businesses haven’t flushed out the bandits since they know the place they’re.
El-Rufai in 2016 stated his authorities traced some violent, aggrieved Fulani to their nations and paid them to cease the killing of Southern Kaduna natives and the destruction of their communities.

The cleric was first taken to Jeddah however was returned to Mecca and put beneath home arrest for a lot of months earlier than the intervention of the Nigerian authorities.
Abdulmutallab, then 23, had unsuccessfully tried to detonate a bomb wired to his underwear aboard a Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam that was about to land in Detriot, Michigan with 289 folks on board.
The system failed, however the terrorist turned enveloped in a fireball that unfold to the wall and carpeting of the aircraft.
Four passengers shortly restrained him and helped put out the fireplace, witnesses stated, and he was escorted as much as the first-class part of the aircraft and brought into custody by US authorities when it landed.
