<blockquote><br><br>The Islamic cleric and peace negotiator, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has said that Boko Haram would soon infiltrate the Fulani killer-herders that have been in constant clashes with farmers across the country and also involved in banditry.<br><br>Gumi also said the Fulani herders feel their existence is being threatened, so they cross borders to defend their kinsmen each time they are attacked.<br><br>The Islamic cleric spoke in an interview on Channels TV Politics Today on Monday.<br><br>Told that he is seen as deodorising evil, Sheikh Gumi said there was the need for a cleric to intervene because the Fulani and those fighting them were two sides that see each other as enemies, whereas they are all victims.<br><br>On the possibility of Boko Haram using the Fulani, Gumi said the Fulani bandits were not Boko Haram, noting, however, that We have to be very careful.<br><br>If the pressure is too much, I am afraid they can be influenced by Boko Haram. We have seen the signs that Boko Haram is going to infiltrate them.<br><br>On why he can locate and hold dialogue with the bandits while government authorities cannot find them, Gumi said: They (government) know. They see them (bandits) by aerial view.<br><br>But the military has learned its lesson. The first approach they had when they go in and start killing they realised is the wrong way and that they were producing a monster. They are now careful.<br><br>The only element I am adding now is look, dont just wait and watch, go in and negotiate.</blockquote><a href="https://www.vanguardngr.com/2021/02/boko-haram-will-soon-infiltrate-killer-herdsmen-bandits-sheikh-gumi/">https://www.vanguardngr.com/2021/02/boko-haram-will-soon-infiltrate-killer-herdsmen-bandits-sheikh-gumi/</a> Click here to read full news..
