Gumi advised came after suspected bandits kidnapped over 200 people including school children in the Northern region of the country, discouraging FG from using troops to invade bandit’s camp.

Sheikh Gumi also claimed that there is no military solution to end the insecurity problems Nigeria is currently facing.

The scholar who said this during an interview session with AriseNews TV, insisted that persistent military attacks on the terrorists were responsible for their latest lack of sympathy on Nigerians they abducted.

He added that the Nigerian government should emulate how the United States’ government negotiated with the Taliban terrorists by also having a dialogue with the bandits to prevent the insurgence in the country.

He said, “This thing (banditry) is turning into something else. We are turning them into monsters, more monsters as what they are. They are ignorant, they don’t have direction, they don’t leadership, they don’t have empathy now because of the way we treat them too, we don’t care when we burn them.
