Serious Tension In Presidency As Gumi Finally Named Those Supplying Weapons And Drugs To Bandits
Popular Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, on Thursday, insisted that some police and Army officers are aiding banditry in Nigeria.
Gumi alleged that some security operatives are selling weapons to bandits and also into drugs distribution.
Speaking further , the Islamic scholar urged the Army and the police hierarchy to identify and flush out the bad eggs.
He also claimed that some security agents aided the bandits by collecting bribe from them. According to Gumi: “I know we have bad elements in the security and I think it’s high time that those found to be taking bribe, aiding banditry by selling weapons should be flushed out of the security system.
“Actually in Zamfara, there are some bad elements in the security but not all of them. A few percentage in our security are using the privilege advantage they have to aide bandits in gun running, drug distributions.
“So, I’m calling on the military and the police to reign in on their men and flush out the bad ones.”
Recall that Gumi had accused the military of colluding with bandits in their operations. But, the Nigerian Army had dismissed such claim by Gumi. Lately, the activities of banditry has been on the rise across the country. Bandits have been attacking, abducting and killing students in the Northern part of the country.
