Sheikh Gumi, Urged Buhari should undertake negotiate with Boko Haram to release Pastor – Prophet Iginla


Prophet Joshua Iginla of the Champions Royal Assembly has urged the Federal Government and Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a popular Islamic cleric to secure the release of abducted Pastor Bulus Yakuru.

Prophet Iginla stated the federal government and Gumi should undertake the negotiation measure used in releasing kidnapped students to ensure pastor Bulus’ freedom.

The Abubakar Shekau-led faction of Boko Haram had abducted the pastor of the Church of the Brethren (EYN) on 24 December 2020, during an attack on Pemi village in Borno State.

The terrorist group had threatened to kill Pastor Bulus within seven days.

Reacting, Prophet Iginla in a statement he sent prayed for the release of Bulus.

He stated: “Am a bit worried over the pastor that was captured in Borno and given 7 days ultimatum.

“I watched the clip asking for the federal government to come to his rescue. We will pray for him and urge the government to look at it that aside from being a pastor and a Christian, he is a citizen of this nation.

“If the captured students could be released through negotiation with the bandits, then they should negotiate for this pastor too. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

“I beg the federal government to negotiate for his release if they’ll rescue him by sending army personnel. If we don’t have clergy who knows these people then the sheikh Gumi should rise to this occasion too for the release of this pastor.

“If we don’t speak out, they might behead him. We still have Leah in custody, and I’m worried. If the other people from other religions have been being released then they should use the same means to release these other people from other religions too.”
