The administration led by Bola Tinubu has taken the step of inviting controversial Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, for questioning regarding his statements on the activities of bandits in the country.

During a press briefing at the State House in Abuja, Minister of Information and Orientation, Mohammed Idris, announced that Gumi is being called in for questioning as no one is above the law, and the government deems it necessary to address his comments.

Gumi has been known for advocating for the rights of bandits and terrorists involved in high-profile kidnappings and attacks in Nigeria for several years. In a recent interview, he urged Tinubu to intervene and stop the military from carrying out airstrikes on terrorist hideouts in remote areas.

Additionally, Gumi called on the federal government to consider granting amnesty to the numerous bandits causing havoc across the country, similar to the initiative established during the administration of Musa Yar’Adua.
