A Kaduna-based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, on Monday reiterated the necessity to grant bandits amnesty.
Gumi mentioned bandits are going nowhere till the Nigerian Authorities grants them amnesty prefer it did to the Niger Delta militants.
The cleric, who has entry to bandits, disclosed this in a put up on his Fb web page entitled: ‘Zamfara: The Flaring Of Disaster.’
Gumi warned that navy motion towards armed herders would worsen the insecurity scenario fairly than resolve it.
Citing the incident in Afghanistan, the Kaduna-based scholar insisted that no navy, particularly of a poor economic system, can win guerrilla warfare.
The assertion reads partly: “By 2015, banditry has changed cattle rearing that’s turning into almost unattainable. Medication had been launched into the herdsmen which might be recognized to be illiterates or semi-illiterates.
“Simply as we had the Niger Delta battle resolved with an amnesty which comes with reconciliation, reparation, and rehabilitation packages, so will the herdsmen disaster be resolved. In actual fact, there’s a want for a Marshal plan to teach the nomadic pastoralist in order that no citizen is left behind.
“No navy, particularly of a poor economic system, can win guerrilla warfare. The latest victory of the Taliban in Afghanistan is a factual warning for people who ponder.”
Lately, Gumi had referred to as on the Nigerian Authorities to grant bandits blanket amnesty.
