FG Should Have A Round Table Discussion With The Bandits – Sheikh Gumi



Islamic cleric Sheik Gumi has given a hint on the activities of the bandits who are currently terrorising the nation, disrupting peace and taking insecurity notches further, asking the Federal Government to swallow the hard pill of having a round table meeting with them to ensure peace in the nation.
The Kaduna-based clergy disclosed that bandits use the ransom they get from the families of their victims and the Government to acquire sophisticated weapons and settle their informants.Government Should Have Round Table Discussion With The Bandits - Sheikh GumiSheik Gumi said this in an interview this Daily Post where he also dismissed claims that government officials and the elites are behind the increased activities of banditry in the North. According to him, the bandits are fighting an ethnic war and not ideological war.

“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”, he reportedly said.Government Should Have Round Table Discussion With The Bandits - Sheikh GumiExhibiting some positivity that the current state of insecurity cannot paralyze Nigeria, Sheikh Gumi reportedly pointed out that the number of those involved in banditry and kidnapping are small when compared to the population of Nigeria. He then called on the Federal Government to do what is right and engage the bandits in a roundtable discussion with the view of ending the menace.

“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 reportedly said.
