Gumi stated this during an interview with PUNCH, while reacting to the abduction of 200 Islamiyya schoolchildren in the Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State.

He said many of the bandits are willing to dialogue with the government and ready to fight the bad ones if given the chance.

“We are always trying to do our best, but you see, you need two hands to shake. You know these people (bandits) need engagements from the government itself. If you dialogue with them without the involvement of the government, it is a problem.

“Government needs to be proactive with them. We have a lot of them that are ready to fight the bad ones. Use the bad to fight the ugly, and use the good to fight the bad ones when you’re done with the ugly. Look at Boko Haram, who finished Shekau? Was it not the splinter group? So, it is easy.

“All these agitations you see, if the government can do a splinter group and the splinter group is empowered, every man wants power and money, they will do your job. There are many ready to submit themselves. All the ones you see me meeting in the bush, they are all telling us, ‘we are ready.’”

KanyiDaily recalls that Sheikh Gumi has warned Nigerians to stop addressing bandits as criminals so that they will willingly put down their weapon.
