Nigerian Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi has publicly made it known that he will be mediating for bandits anymore.

This comes after he made a name for himself for defending terrorists and at a point, he was on record to have said that bandits need to be treated with care.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Premium Times he stated that he even took medical services to bandits in the forests in Zamfara and Niger states.

He added that his efforts were not appreciated as he feels he is being sabotaged. In the submission, he said;

“Since the federal government has declared them terrorists, I don’t have anything to do with them anymore. I will not like to expose myself to danger again and to put a spotlight on myself unnecessarily. I have tried all I could do to admonish the nation on the best way to do it, but it seems my advice has fallen on deaf ears.”
