I no longer have anything to do with bandits – Sheikh Gumi declares

 Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a prominent Islamic cleric, has stated that he is no longer involved with bandits.

I no longer have anything to do with bandits – Sheikh Gumi declares
This comes after a federal appeals court ruled that they are now terrorists.

A federal high court in Abuja ruled all bandit groups' operations in the country to constitute acts of terrorism on November 25.

Gumi is infamous for demanding amnesty for bandits who are accused of killing thousands of people and kidnapping many of them, including children.

 "Since the federal government declared them terrorists, I don't have anything to do with them anymore," he stated in an interview with Premium Times on Wednesday.

"I don't want to put myself in risk again or draw attention to myself unnecessarily." I've done everything I can to advise the nation on the wisest course of action, but it appears that my advice has fallen on deaf ears."

"By traveling to the forest and engaging the bandits, I have put my life on the line for peace." Rock bandits are among them, and they are menacing, armed and ready to fire.

"Even though it is perilous, we risked our lives to ensure that we bring peace to this country." Because someone has to take that risk, and we did, and thank God we made it out alive and well, knowing how to deal with this problem.

"Perhaps in the future, when the political situation improves, we might do it again to bring peace, harmony, and tranquillity to the country."
