Recently, Islamic scholar Sheikh Gumi alleged that non-Muslim soldiers launch attacks on communities in troubled northern states, leading bandits to seek vengeance by killing residents.
Mr. Gumi earlier visited Zamfara villages to have peace talks with bandits in the forest, to negotiate with them on the need to surrender their arms.
While addressing some of the bandits in a new video circulating online, Mr. Gumi claimed that the soldiers are stirring confusions with the aim of wreaking havoc.
Nevertheless, Barely 24 Hours After Sheikh Gumi Accused Non-Muslims Soldiers, See What He Said.
Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has reiterated that Fulani herdsmen involved in banditry are victims of circumstance.
Gumi restated his position during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday.
The cleric has previously advocated for the bandits to be granted amnesty after meeting them in the bush.
“When I listened to them, I found out that it is a simple case of criminality which turned into banditry, which turned into ethnic war, and some genocide too behind the scene; people don’t know,” he said.
So, what do you think about Gumi Sheikh's statement about the non-Muslim soldiers in Nigeria?.
Do you agree with Sheikh Gumi that bandits are peaceful people?
