Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi, has asked the Federal government to collect N100m from CBN to pay ransom for abducted Greenfield University students who were abducted by the bandits on Sunday, April 18.
Out of the 22 students who were abducted, 5 have been killed, one was released on the 4th of May (Tuesday) while 16 of the students remain in captivity and the bandits have threatened to kill the remaining students if the ransom isn’t paid.
The Islamic Cleric told Punch in a new interview that the Federal Government should collect N100 million from the Central Bank to pay the bandits.
‘The money they are asking for is too much; if I give you that money, you cannot run away with it. Nobody can run. So, why not give them the money, they release the boys and then we pursue them and get our money back and do what is necessary; it is simple logic. So, bring the money from the central bank. How can they move that money? We should not be stupid.
These people are getting infiltrated; Boko Haram is getting close and they don’t respect the clergy. I need support to get them inoculated against the infiltration of these ideologies, whether Boko Haram or Ansaru, whatever it is. We need to shield them because they are naïve. If there is too much pressure on them, and they see help from Boko Haram, who are richer and have more weapons, it is going to consume everybody.”
