As Bandits And Herdsmen Are Ready To Lay Down Arms, Grant Them Amnesty – Gumi Tells FG

Sheik Gumi, a controversial Islamic cleric, has reportedly stated that bandits and herdsmen should be granted amnesty, as they are ready to lay down their arms.

He continued that granting bandits amnesty would stop further bloodshed and hostilities in the North.

Disclosing this in Kaduna, Gumi stated that, “If there is anything that can stop the shedding of blood, it is better just like what happened with the Niger Delta militants, they were shedding blood and vandalising pipelines, but where they were ready to drop their weapons with an amnesty that will take care of them, I think the same thing can apply to herdsmen.”

He made it known that, “We have met them and they are ready to put down their arms, but when they put down their arms if you do not educate them and provide them with funds to take care of them, they will go back to the same old ways.”

He added that, “Still, we call for amnesty and stopping all hostilities because we know how we can deal with it peacefully.”
