Mohammed Oluwatimileyin Taoheed reports,

A Nigerian popular Islamic scholar, Sheikh Abubakar Ahmad Gumi, has issued a stern caution security agencies over the indiscriminate arrests of Fulani youths.

He made this known at the venue of the launch of a Nomadic Right Concern group in Kaduna.

Sheikh Gumi alleged that Nigerian law enforcement bodies do arrest innocent Fulani youths and children.

He said: “Just a few days ago, a man called to tell me that security agencies arrested his seven innocent children on 17 May 2022 and since then, there was no news on their whereabouts.

“There are also many testimonies of the disappearance of Fulani youths and children without a trace.

“There are those kept in secure custody and prisons for years without trial. If somebody is arrested for a crime, the laws say he should be taken to court within 24 hours but these youths are kept for years without trial, some have died in custody. This cannot be happening in a country like this.

“The Nomadic Right Concern group was introduced to seek justice for the innocent children arrested.

“Those that are found guilty should be punished by the law but the innocent ones should be released in the interest of justice and equity. such indiscriminate arrest of youth and children must stop.”
