Popular Islamic preacher and controversial Islamic Kaduna scholar, Sheikh Ahmad has recently urge the federal government to establish educational system for fulani Herdsmen so as to control the insecurity happenings in the country.
Sheikh Gumi while speaking that the provision of infrastructures to Fulani herdsmen in their main aread could be of help in curbing their furious doctrine in Nigeria, has conveyed that “Instead of spending billions on military hardware to fight the bandits, Nigeria should spend such money on schools and teachers.I have spoken with the bandits and they have expressed willingness to drop their arms and embrace peace, if their children can be given education and other social amenities.”
He added that “The herdsman is the most peaceful. For those that have used banditry and criminality to express their grievances, we want them to know that there is another way.We call on the three tiers of government, corporate organisations and public spirited individuals to support in bringing development to the grassroots,” he stated.
Also, reports had gathered that the Islamic Cleric recently established a school in Kaduna for the Heardsmen.
