RCCG Members Kidnapped: Gumi Finally Breaks Silence

Popular Kaduna based Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has said he is not a negotiator for bandits.

Gumi said this when he received Shehu Sani, the Senator who represented Kaduna Central in the 8th Assembly.

Sani had visited Gumi over the abduction of 39 students of Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Afaka, Kaduna State, and that of eight members of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

He, however, said arrangements were ongoing to secure the release of the students who have spent three weeks in captivity.

“As for the College students, we have done all we can do. In fact I had a meeting with parents of the kidnapped students sequel to their meeting with Government.

“I showed them what the problem is and they went to visit government and returned. I am not a negotiator for bandits, we always ensured that government officials were present in our previous discussions with bandits in the forests, before the Federal Government’s shoot at sight order.

“But, as for the college students, we are making arrangements for them through a contact to see how this problem can be solved.”

Last week, Gumi had told Daily Trust that the shoot-at-sight order was hindering the rescue of the captives.
