Bandits are Going Nowhere Till FG Gives Them Amnesty Like Niger Delta Militant -Sheikh Gumi Claims

A renowned Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Dr. Sheikh Mahmud Gumi said bandits are going nowhere until the Federal Government gives them amnesty just like Niger Delta Militants. Because these herdsmen are already in battle gear, that only government involvement can stop them.

According to Sahara Reporters, the cleric made this statement in a Facebook titled Zamfara; The Flaring of Crisis.

Recall that months ago, Sheikh had visited several forests to negotiate a peace deal with bandits but the situation worsens instead.

The Islamic scholar said the way soldiers treating the bandits/kidnappers would not bring a solution rather worsen the problem. That no military in a poor country like Nigeria can win a war against terrorists, citing what happened recently in Afghanistan as an example.

He further said the nomadic pastoralists need to be educated so that no citizens are left behind.
