Popular Nigeria Islamic scholar, Sheil Dr. Ahmad Gumi has made it clear that Nigerian armed forces need to be re-orientated to tackle the insecurity challenges we are currently facing across all the states in the country.
According to him, he explained that violence begets violence and blood draws blood is a law of nature. Nobody has the absolute monopoly of violence. Torture and extrajudicial killings by state performers have been the major cause of militancy in Nigeria. And that is how Boko Haram started with the extrajudicial killing of their leader.
Furthermore, Dr. Gumi said that has seen many crimes committed by the soldiers that are sent to defend us but rather, they often go on a spree killing people and razing his towns, and his town was a district within Dambo'a local government area of Borno, he lost most of his connections to that occurrence, and they have not seen their corpses for burial.
He explained that the same thing occurred in the Birnin Gwari area, directing to what is happening today of intensifying vicious banditry in the province. He also said that if the herdsmen in Adamawa and some states in north-central are evaluated, none of them are notoriously involved in abductions like what happened in Birin Gwari where the alleged military has reached the Northeast proportion. He said
The authority and grade and file of our armed forces hence should require to be abreast with laws of attention and critical retraining of particularly the lower levels to honor human confidence in handling criminals. The government should not accept its ‘moral’ teachings from criminals. We do as they do. He said.
He concluded his statements by explaining that In a nation where the rule of law is weak and damaged by its supposed keepers, the chain between crime and lawfulness becomes narrow and aggressive. The blabbermouth comes to be the criminal, the killer becomes the liberator, the victim comes to be the villain. There is a need for national guards to save our military from handling residents as national enemies just if they are culprits.
