Bandits: Gumi Speaks On Benefiting From Ransom

 Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi, on Friday dismissed the news that he profits from the earnings from banditry. 

Gumi in an interview with Daily Post, said the claim is baseless, as he would never think of doing it. He said his loyalty is to the Nigerian Government and security agencies. 

Recall Gumi asked the government to give amnesty to armed bandits the way it did to the Niger Deltan militants. He said that Bandits only Kidnap for money why IPOB kill security personnel in the south-east. This made people to believe that the cleric benefits from the proceeds of the kidnapping. 

Reacting to the claims, Gumi said his religion forbids him from partaking in such proceeds.
