Sheikh Gumi who made the call on Friday, February 19, 2021, while addressing journalists in Minna, Niger State capital.

According to him, the government should give bandits willing to make peace ‘blanket amnesty’ if the current security situation must be tackled.

“The Federal government should give them blanket amnesty, then if somebody continues, then we will deal with them,” Sheik Gumi said.

KanyiDaily recalls that on Wednesday, Sheikh Gumi met the bandits who allegedly kidnapped the students and staff of Government Science College (KSC) in Kagara, Niger.

When asked about the outcome of his meeting, the cleric explained that some of the complaints of the bandits are that they were being killed and maimed unjustly.

“The outcome (of his visit) is very positive. We have many factions and each faction is saying I have complaints and grievances – we are persecuted, we are arrested, we are lynched -,” the cleric said, quoting the bandits.

Speaking on his discussion with the bandits, Sheik Gumi said there is a positive response from the bandits who are holding the Kagara school students and their staff captive.

The cleric, however, did not state if the Kagara students have been released or when they will regain freedom from their abductors (bandits).
