The Prelate of Methodist Church Nigeria, His Eminence, Dr Samuel Chukwuemeka Kanu-Uche has advised president Muhammadu Buhari to put armed bandits on monthly stipends.
The Prelate said this will bring to a halt the violent activities of the terrorists since all they want is food to eat.
The cleric who failed to adequately explain how he got to know that the bandits only want food, added that the Government would do well to take serious the work Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has been doing in relating with the terrorists.
The Methodist Prelate said: “Who are those collecting ransom for bandits? If the government rather than criticising Gumi, engages him positively, he can bring a solution. You don’t dismiss him and say he is a bad man.
