Bandits Will Remain Until Buhari Grants Them Amnesty Like Niger Delta Militants – Sheikh Gumi threatens » Naijaloaded


A Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, on Monday reiterated the need to grant bandits amnesty.

Gumi said bandits are going nowhere until the Nigerian Government grants them amnesty like it did to the Niger Delta militants.

The cleric, who has access to bandits, disclosed this in a post on his Facebook page entitled: ‘Zamfara: The Flaring Of Crisis.’

Gumi warned that military action against armed herders would worsen the insecurity situation rather than solve it.

Citing the incident in Afghanistan, the Kaduna-based scholar insisted that no military, especially of a poor economy, can win guerrilla warfare.

The statement reads partly:

“By 2015, banditry has replaced cattle rearing that is becoming nearly impossible. Drugs were introduced into the herdsmen that are known to be illiterates or semi-illiterates.

“Just as we had the Niger Delta conflict resolved with an amnesty which comes with reconciliation, reparation, and rehabilitation packages, so will the herdsmen crisis be resolved. In fact, there is a need for a Marshal plan to educate the nomadic pastoralist so that no citizen is left behind.

“No military, especially of a poor economy, can win guerrilla warfare. The recent victory of the Taliban in Afghanistan is a factual warning for those that contemplate.”

Recently, Gumi had called on the Nigerian Government to grant bandits blanket amnesty.

UPDATE!!! Militants Don’t Kidnap Children – Fani-kayode Replies Sheikh Gumi On Amnesty For Bandits » Naijaloaded


Femi Fani-Kayode, former Nigerian minister, has condemned a statement credited to Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, demanding amnesty for bandits.

Gumi in a Facebook post said bandits are going nowhere until the Nigerian Government grants them amnesty like it did to the Niger Delta militants.

Fani-Kayode, reacting to the statement which has continued to generate controversy, told Sheik Gumi not to compare Niger Delta militants to bandits as the latter does not rape or abduct children from schools.

According to him, Gumi’s demand is asinine and unacceptable.

On his Twitter page, he wrote:

“ For Gumi to say that the killer bandits & terrorists are not going anywhere unless and until they are given amnesty like the Niger Delta militants is asinine and unacceptable.

“The Niger Delta militants did not target, rape, kill women and they did not abduct children from their schools.”
