In his Facebook page, Femi Adesina described Gumi as a “bandit-lover” and Sheikh Gunmi replied in kind below.
“You bootlicker that referred to as me a bandit-lover! I’m not one, however my country-lover, my region-lover, my state-lover, and my people-lover, and humanity-lover. I’m a certified Medical Physician who is aware of what it takes to exactly excise a mind tumour with out destroying the fragile surrounding mind tissues. I used to be a commissioned army officer who is aware of what the army is for and what’s the functionality of our army. I’m an mental with a Ph.D. from Overseas. I’m an Islamic scholar who is aware of the immorality of killing harmless lives. So, silence for me on this ocean of oblivion just isn’t an choice.
“Solely a idiot would enable his dwelling to be a theatre of warfare. Sadly, what number of fools are there. Killing rats in your rat-infested sitting room with an iron rod will solely find yourself destroying your devices and furnishings in all probability with out killing any. We should always not masks out poor governance with artillery energy. Some disingenuous individuals say: peace and negotiations with herdsmen bandits have failed, and your mission has failed!
“I stated my mission has not failed however it was sabotaged or discouraged by the identical influential those that profit from the chaos or like us to destroy ourselves and depart the herdsmen in perpetual ignorance. Some stated we have now tried amnesty however it didn’t work. You didn’t strive amnesty however tried amnesia. Amnesty with out rehabilitation, reconciliation, and reparation isn’t any amnesty. Ask the previous Niger Delta Militants who killed safety males up to now what an amnesty is. What stops us from having a federal ministry of Nomadic Affairs the place their grievances and complaints will probably be addressed?
“All of the bandit leaders we noticed complained of how some repentant ones had been picked and extra-judicially killed after the give up of their weapons. With out their belief of the very unjust system all Nigerians complain of, which they took arms to struggle, peace and negotiations with them won’t work. This brings our function of mediation. They know as spiritual males we won’t deceive them, and so they got here out in troops to fulfill us. To our astonishment, it’s the similar unjust system that turns spherical to betray our peace mission. Among the press for giving a destructive narrative, whom I additionally time period criminals-in-purpose, a number of the politicians who I see as urban-bandits who out of their share mismanagement of our meagre sources and misplacement of precedence trigger the demise and infirmity of extra individuals than the bandits have an effect on.
“Of current, what number of Nigerians die of cholera -a water-born disease- due to lack of easy clear water to drink, or typhoid, malaria, and malnutrition? A nation with a maternal mortality charge of virtually 500,000/annum due to the dearth of sufficient maternal well being services and certified employees. A rustic the place its highly-priced medical personnel is in search of a window to flee the inferno. Such a rustic, please!
“By the way in which, what chances are you’ll not hear, is that the bandits over time have developed escape routes from aerial bombardments. They informed us: you’ll be able to solely kill our girls and youngsters together with your assaults!
“Simply yesterday, two contingents of banditry victims got here to me that their family members had been kidnapped by bandits in Kaduna suburbs – Rigachukun and Keke. An escapee engineer within the later stated, when he overheard and understood that they had been strangers within the space as they had been calling the locals to steer them, that gave him the braveness to slide by way of densely grown maize plantations to flee. The purpose is that, if Zamfara is on hearth for them, undoubtedly it goes with out saying that they’ll migrate to different areas. So, is the entire of Nigeria going to be beneath lock-up in incommunicado?
“As for the financial impression of the areas now beneath siege, it’s only a matter of time, you’ll hear them crying out. Already yesterday a person from Tsafe got here begging due to financial stagnation, one would have thought that Gusau the capital is nearer than Kaduna to beg.
“As for these cynics that haven’t any worth so as to add within the dilemma besides vituperation, and abuses, we all know that’s the substance they’re made up of. No qualms in anyway! you don’t count on perfume from feces. So, what’s the resolution?
“Good Intelligence! Good proficient policing, engagement of the native herdsmen in policing, rehabilitation, reconciliation, and reparation of all victims of banditry. The nice sincere judiciary that protects individuals’s rights. Time and money properly spent on these will certainly kill the illness and heal the nation of this delinquency, crimes, and unhealthy governance.”
