Renowned Islamic scholar, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi, has revealed the motive behind bandits constantly claiming money before they free their victims.

 He was engaged in an interview with the Daily Post , he revealed that the war of abductions and killings by the bandits go beyond the normal agendas we see as they are fighting an ethnic and not ideological war.

He said: “That was a small metamorphosis in the process, but now the bulk of the money they collect is used to buy weapons. Bandits are independent now, and nobody influences them. In fact, they buy informants now, and they are fighting an ethnic war which makes it easier because they are not fighting for ideology.”

“There is a high state of insecurity, but it has not reached the state where it will paralyse Nigeria. We still travel around despite more frequent and sporadic attacks.

“The issue has not got to the stage of paralysing Nigeria. The active people involved are few, and I do not think they are more than 10, 000 actively engaged in kidnapping among the herdsmen,”

“Government should do the right thing, and honestly speaking, Nigerians have to swallow these bitter pills which is getting these people on a table and set in place a machinery to rehabilitate them,” he added.
