Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has called on the President Bola Tinubu-led Federal Government to negotiate with bandits.

Gumi said the Nigerian Government should build schools, markets and hospitals for bandits.

Speaking with Trust TV, Gumi said Tinubu’s government should allow bandits have a future, rather than continuing to spend billions of Naira to combat banditry and terrorism.

According to Gumi: “Negotiate with these people. Build for them schools and hospitals. Let them have future. Build for them markets.

“Even the people we call bandits, what they sometimes complain is that they no longer have cattle markets because whenever they establish market, it gets destroyed.

“So the military should be out of this picture completely. We are not fighting a foreign country. We should develop our internal security.”
