General Lucky Irabor, Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, has said that controversial Islamic scholar known for negotiating with bandits, Ahmad Gumi is playing his part to tackle the insecurity ravaging the country and would not be stopped by the military.

General Irabor, speaking at a ministerial briefing organised by the presidential communications team at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said that while Mr Gumi does not work for the military, the military will not prevent anyone from contributing to the country’s security.

Gumi, a self-appointed mediator between bandits and the government, has been at the forefront of articulating the position of bandits wreaking havoc across the North.

The influential Islamic cleric recently stated that one-third of Nigeria’s budget for battling insecurity should be spent on bandits through techniques other than fighting, such as enlightenment and listening to their problems.

During a recent speaking engagement at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Mr Gumi stated that the humane side of bandits could be optimised by by showing them understanding and respect.

He said he has been able to undertake several visits and negotiations with the brigands simply by showing empathy to their yearnings.

The advocacy of Mr Gumi for bandits drew flaks from the presidency weeks past.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesman Femi Adesina slammed him as “bandits-lover”.

Many Nigerians have also called for Mr Gumi’s interrogation.

Listen to yourself. Idiot. Having denied your Igbo root you have sold your soul to the North to be used against your own people. Asked where you are from you will quickly and foolishly say...I am not Igbo. ( I no be Igbo)  . Proven that you are originally Igbo but rejecting your root because of national appointment Amadioha ( Our God of thunder will strike your entire family dead)  . Keep sending army to South East to slaughter our people while your family awaits vengeance from God and NDIGBO.
