Prominent Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, on Thursday, led the Secretary to the Niger State Government, Alhaji Ahmed Matane, and security operatives to a meeting with some suspected bandits in the state.
SaharaReporters gathered that the delegation met with the armed men in Tegina forest, a border town between Niger and Kaduna states. The development comes two days after gunmen abducted 27 students and workers of Government Science College, Kagara, Niger State.
The cleric, while suing for peace, reportedly preached to the gunmen and urged them to release all abductees. Gumi told the bandits that they had legitimate concerns and that the Nigerian government should look into ways of providing “reasonable” means of livelihood for them.
Speaking during the visit, the leader of the group, Dogo Gide, promised Gumi and others that all those kidnapped either directly by his people or by people he could influence, would be released soon.
