Gumi hits Federal government over threat to sanction BBC, Trust TV


Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi says the federal government is “trying to find a scapegoat” for its failure to tackle insecurity.

The cleric was reacting to the plan by the federal government to sanction some media organisations for “glorifying terrorism”.

Gumi said insecurity should be expected because President Muhammadu Buhari rewards failure with  Ambassadorial appointments.

On Thursday, Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, said the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) and Daily Trust would be penalised over their documentaries on terrorism and banditry in Nigeria.
