The Federal Government of Nigeria (FG) has been asked to give bandits blanket amnesty.
This call was made by the popular Nigerian Islamic scholar, Sheikh Gumi and in his view, the only way to tackle the insecurity situation in Nigeria is by giving bandits willing to make peace blanket amnesty.
He made this known as he addressed the press in Niger State after his meeting with the bandits who kidnapped 27 students in the Government Science College Kagara.
In his submission, he said;
“The Federal government should give them blanket amnesty, then if somebody continues, then we will deal with them.
The outcome is very positive. We have many factions and each faction is saying I have complaints and grievances, we are persecuted, we are arrested, we are lynched.”
