Last week, Gumi found himself at odds with security agencies after disputing their authority to label individuals as terror financers particularly in response to the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit’s designation of his associate, Tukur Mamu, and 14 others.

The cleric had also offered to negotiate with bandits for the release of 137 pupils abducted on March 7, 2024 from the Chikun Local Government Area of the state by marauding bandits in Kaduna State.

However,government officials, including the Minister and Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani, asserted that no ransom was paid for the safe return of the kidnapped pupils and that Gumi was not involved in the safe return of abducted Kuriga pupils.
