Sponsor good bandits to fight the bad ones – Gumi advises Federal Government

Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi who previously advocated for amnesty for bandits has advised the Federal Government to utilize the splinter groups among bandits to bring the bandits to an end.

In an interview with Punch, Gumi stated that many bandits were ready for a dialogue and that the Federal government could use them to fight the “ugly ones” and end the kidnappings carried out by them.

He said;

We are always trying to do our best, but you see, you need two hands to shake. You know these people (bandits) need engagements from the government itself. If you dialogue with them without the involvement of the government, it is a problem.

Government needs to be proactive with them. We have a lot of them that are ready to fight the bad ones. Use the bad to fight the ugly, and use the good to fight the bad ones when you’re done with the ugly. Look at Boko Haram, who finished Shekau? Was it not the splinter group? So, it is easy.

All these agitations you see, if the government can do a splinter group and the splinter group is empowered, every man wants power and money, they will do your job. There are many ready to submit themselves. All the ones you see me meeting in the bush, they are all telling us, ‘we are ready.
