Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Gumi accuses Shi'ite leader, Sheikh Zakzaky of running a parallel government

Sheikh Ahmad Gumi
A prominent Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has alleged that the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakzaky, has been operating a parallel government in the North for the past 40 years.

Speaking in an interview with journalists in Kaduna yesterday, Gumi alleged that “the Shiites have been embarking on military training and producing cadets and soldiers,’’ saying the group was “operating a state within a state.”
According to him, “the Islamic Movement of Nigeria does not recognise the corporate entity of Nigeria. The group is not registered. They operate above the law and they get direct foreign aid.”
He claimed that the late President Shehu Musa Yar’Adua had told him of the massive importation of ammunition and weapons to different parts of the country and that Yar’Adua had mentioned Iran as supplying arms to the Shittes.

According to him, the recent clash between Shiites and soldiers was ‘’a divine intervention to prevent us from a catastrophe like that of Boko Haram.
”It became sudden and powerful to eradicate and uproot any plan that they must have been having to harm the society.’’
He recalled that he wrote to the Shiite leader last year, warning him about the dangers of blocking roads during the annual Ar’baeen trek, where Zakzaky’s followers travelled on foot from all over the country to Zaria, saying that blocking roads was an abomination in Islam.

Gumi warned that the North will continue to be under-developed if the twin evils of Shiite and Boko Haram are not eradicated.
