Popular Islamic Cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has said that it is circumstances that drove the rampaging bandits that have been oppressing North Eastern Nigeria into banditry.
The Cleric said this on Tuesday morning, insisting that the bandits are tired and now want peace.
He added that if they could find someone to partner with, they will quit their ways.
When asked if bandits were tired, Gumi said: “Yes, it’s very true because bandits are saying they were pushed into banditry by circumstances.”
“If they have a genuine partner, they are ready to stop it; they are tired and want peace.
