The Nigerian Army has cautioned Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, over his unguarded remarks blaming non-Muslim soldiers for insecurity in the northern region.

Gumi has over the past few weeks been meeting with armed groups terrorising the region to discuss peace deals and encourage them to lay down their arms.

During one of such meetings in a border town between Niger and Kaduna last month, the cleric accused non-Muslim soldiers of provoking Muslim communities with targeted violence.

His accusation was in response to the bandits complaining that they were forced into a life of crime because soldiers unjustly killed many of their friends and families.

"The non-Muslims are the ones causing confusion just to ignite a crisis," the cleric had said.

The remarks drew widespread condemnation two weeks ago, but there was no official reaction from the Army until a statement was released on Monday, March 8, 2021.

Army spokesperson, Brigadier General Mohammed Yerima, said the institution does not deploy its troops along ethnic or religious lines.

"The Nigerian Army remains the pride of the nation and has continually defended the territorial integrity of this great nation.

"Comments suggesting to mudslide the image and reputation of the Nigerian Army are not only inimical but tended towards creating bad blood amongst Nigerians,"
he said.

Yerima slammed Gumi's conduct as disturbing and designed to paint the Army in a bad light.

He further warned him and other opinion leaders to exercise restraint in their portrayal of the Army, and in respect of national security.

U.A.E AND A LOT COUNTRIES THAT PRACTICE ISLAM  ARE  MUSLIMS  BUT THEY WILL NEVER SUFFER THEIR OWN CHILDREN, NIGERIAN NORTHERN MUSLIM  IS A  BAD EXAMPLE OF ISLAM, THEY CHOSE TO FOLLOW THE TERORIST PRINCIPLE AND THEY ARE TRYING TO MAKE THE WHOLE COUNTRY CALL NIGERIA TO ACCEPT THAT KIND OF EVIL RELIGION FROM THE NORTH. THAT IS WHY WE DONT WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE NORTH AGAIN . LET THEM GO AND HAVE THEIR OWN TERORIST AREWA COUNTRY AND ANYBODY WHO LIKE THIER IDIOLOGY SHOULD GO WITH THEM. THE NORTHERN NIGERIAN MUSLIM IS EVIL AND WICKED. GOD WILL PUNISH YOU AND ALL YOUR AGENTS. BASTARDS!

That man up there doesn't represent Islam in any way. Rather he represents himself and his interests. Everyday we hear of pastors messing up and bringing down the name of the Lord, do we also say christianity has disintegrated Nigeria?? Religions are perfect, it is those that practise it that are flawed.
