Ahmad Gumi Makes Second vow, Confirms he will no longer Negotiate for Bandits Again

Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi who has been vocal in advocating for killer bandits and herdsmen in Nigeria has come out to vow for the second time that he will no longer be playing special advisor and mister or mediating in anyway for bandits since the Federal Government has declared them as terrorists.


The controversial cleric who made this announcement on the 29th November 2021, reaffirmed his decision on Wednesday while speaking on an interview with Premium Times on Wednesday December 8.


In his opinion, Gumi believed that it will be dangerous for him to continue to engage the bandits since they’ve been declared terrorists, which was a development he publicly defended before, saying that declaring bandits as terrorists won’t change anything.  

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.


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


“I have endangered my life for peace by going to the forest and engaged 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 better, we can do it again so that there will be peace, harmony and tranquility in the country.”
