Fani-Kayode Slams Gumi Over Comment On Kidnapping Of Schoolchildren


Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has berated prominent Islamic scholar, Shiek Ahmad Abubakar Gumi over his statement that the kidnapping of schoolchildren by bandits is a lesser evil.

We had reported that Gumi described the kidnapping of schoolchildren by bandits as a lesser evil compared to the invasion of communities and the killing of residents.

The cleric also noted that his meetings with the bandits have started yielding positive results, saying bandits are now careful about human lives.

He had said: “Kidnapping children from school is a lesser evil because, in the end, you can negotiate and now bandits are very careful about human lives.

“Before, the mission of bandits was to go into a town, ransack it and kill people. By this, I can say our preaching is working and hopefully, we are coming to an end of banditry in Zamfara and other states.

“Bandits are more careful about lives now and just want to do sensational attacks which would bring attention to themselves.”

Reacting to the cleric’s comment in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Monday, Fani-Kayode described the comment made by Gumi as madness.
