Satguru Maharaj Ji, Founder of One Love Family, has called for the arrest and prosecution of Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi over his involvement with bandits.
Maharaj Ji said Gumi lacked conscience for negotiating with bandits.
Addressing journalists in Ibadan, Oyo State, he said: “It will be recalled that Gumi is an ally of Umar Farouk, the under wear ‘Christmas bomber’ who dented Nigeria’s image internationally through his botched attempted bombing of an aircraft bound for Michigan, USA in 2009.
“Farouk allegedly had links with Sheikh Gumi because his phone contact was not only with him, but he also confirmed Gumi to be one of his associates.
“Up to this moment Sheikh Ahmad Gumi who should be facing criminal trial in the court of law was the one on the negotiating table with Fulani bandit group leader, Dogo Gide and his group for kidnapping students and members of staff of Government Science College, Lagbara in Niger State.
“Is this not mortgaging the conscience of our youths? Invariably, teaching them, it is okay to take arms against the state and they will be rewarded and given recognition for their grand schemes, twists and plots.”
Lately, banditry have been on the increase in the Northern part of the country.
States like Zamfara, Niger, Katsina have all felt the sting of bandits lately.
Amid these events, Gumi had met with the bandits and also called on government to grant them amnesty.
