Paying Bandits Monthly Stipends of N25k will end abductions, killings- Methodist Prelate

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.

”If he goes to the bush and they (bandits) have confidence in him, the government can dialogue with them. Let me tell you, these boys are being used by politicians. I am telling you to quote me.

“If you engage them and pay them N25,000 monthly, they will not kidnap. All they want is food.”
