He added that Sheikh Ahmad Gumi equally played a crucial role behind the scene.

“He was involved from the first day I started. In fact, I accepted that role because of his directives to that effect. Even the final arrangement of how and the safest place to get the victims was arranged and coordinated by him,” he said of Gumi.
