According to report reaching oyogist.com, controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has accused the Nigerian government of knowing the hideouts of killer herdsmen and bandits.
The cleric made the allegations on a Channels Television Programme, Politics Today.
Responding to how he located and dialogued with bandits while the government could not, Gumi said: “They (government) know. They see them (bandits) by the aerial view. But the military has learned its lesson.
“The first approach they had, when they go in and start killing— they realised is the wrong way and that they were producing a monster. They are now careful.
“The only element I am adding now is ‘look, don’t just wait and watch, go in and negotiate.”
