Popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has revealed what he will do if his child is ever kidnapped by bandits.
During an interview with BBC Pidgin on Friday, Sheikh Gumi said he will head to Aso Rock amd lock the seat of power if his child is abducted.
The cleric was reacting to the N100 million demanded by the abductors of Greenfield University students who were kidnapped in April.
Sheikh Gumi said that the federal government has to choose between the option of saving the lives of students or paying the N100 million.
“Life versus material; that is how you will look at it. It is the absolute responsibility of the government to protect lives. Now we have lives or N100 million at stake and these lives of 17 innocent young children,” he said.
“I can’t imagine if my child is there. I can never keep quiet. I will go and lock Aso Rock, if my child is there. They are my children too.
“What is N100 million? So, what I’m saying is, free these children then the field is open for you to whatever action you have. It is between bandits and N100 million. I do not want the struggle between bandits and lives.
“This is just simple logic. It does not require any rocket science. How can you play with lives? You can play with your money, but you can’t play with peoples’ lives. They just went there to study.”
Meanwhile, the bandits have revealed the reasons they killed five innocent students abducted from Greenfield University in Kaduna state.
