Gumsu, a daughter of late military head of state, Gen. Sani Abacha, has insinuated that any insurgency that lasts for more than a day has the backing of government.

She tweeted from her handle, @G_sparking: “If insurgency lasts for more than 24 hrs, the government has a hand in it.”

She attributed the statement to “Late General Sani Abacha.”

Gumsu did not give any details or insight on the tweet dated May 7, 2014 at 5.46pm.

There are bound to be different interpretations, given the allegation by Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State that the federal government was behind the Boko Haram insurgency.

Nyako further alleged that the Goodluck Jonathan administration was carrying out a genocide against Northern Nigeria.

It is also not known when Abacha, who died suddenly on June 8, 1998, made the statement.

Gumsu did not directly link her father’s statement to explain the Boko Haram militancy, but reactions to her tweet clearly thought her assertion was related to the insurgency.

In response to some of those who retweeted or commented, she said: “You are all cheapskates looking for news to sell. Abacha name sweet pass honey????”

“Please I did not say FG has a hand in any abduction nor did I point a direct finger.”

“I only “quoted” my last tweet which aren’t my words. So why take it further? Why blog me?”

Gumsu, who describes herself as a “loving wife and mum” and says she loves “Allah and my family” in her twitter profile, currently lives with her husband in Cameroon and they have five children – three boys and two girls.

In 1999, she married Mohamadou Bayero Fadil in Garoua in the North Province of Cameroon and has been living in the country since then.

Fadil is Chief Executive Officer of Fadil Group and also the Board Chairman of the Cameroon Standards & Quality Agency (ANOR).

He serves as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Institute for Standardisation & Metrology for Islamic Countries (INMPI).

    So, by the same token, since the opposition to your late father lasted more than a day, he must have had a hand in it?

    Gumsu Abacha? It is like you do not look as Muslim because of your appearance. So be careful
