I Have No Business With Bandits Anymore – Ahmad Gumi



Gumi's Camp Speaks On Bandit Attacks, NAF Killing Bandit Kingpins

Controversial Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi on Wednesday affirmed that he has quit mediating for bandits following their declaration as terrorists by the court.

This is coming after the Federal High Court in Abuja declared the activities of bandits’ groups as acts of terrorism.

Gumi in an interview with Premium Times in Kaduna on Wednesday said it will be dangerous for him to continue to engage the bandits.

He said, “since the federal government has declared them terrorists, I don’t have anything to do with them anymore.

“I will not like to expose myself to danger again and to put a spotlight on myself unnecessarily,” the cleric said.

“I have tried all I could do to admonish the nation on the best way to do it, but it seems my advice has fallen (fallen) on deaf ears.

“I have endangered my life for peace by going to the forest and engaging the bandits. Among them there are rock bandits, they are dangerous, armed ready to fire.

“It is dangerous, still we risked our lives to see that we bring peace to this nation. Because somebody has to take that risk and we took it and thanked God we came out safely and knowledgeable, knowing how to come about this issue.

“Maybe in the future when the political situation changes for the better, we can do it again so that there will be peace, harmony and tranquillity in the country.”
