Obasanjo, Gumi Ask FG To Settle And Rehabilitated Bandits Willing To Surrender

Published by Nairaland on Mon, 05 Apr 2021


<blockquote>Former president Olusegun Obasanjo and Ahmad Gumi, prominent Islamic cleric, have asked the federal government to rehabilitate bandits who are willing to surrender.<br>The call was made after Gumi led a delegation to meet with Obasanjo in Abeokuta, Ogun state, on Sunday.<br><br>The meeting follows the recent attacks across the country by suspected bandits.<br>Wean those who are ready to be weaned out of the bushes and crime, settle and rehabilitate them, give them skills, empower them and let them have employment, Obasanjo and Gumi said in a joint statement issued after the meeting.<br><br>Since the end of the civil war, the military are the strongest and most potent instrument and symbol of national unity that we have and we must keep them so.<br><br>State governments must have adequate means of providing security for their people and as chief executives and chief security officers of their states, they must have the means at their disposal to ensure security for all within their states.<br><br>Federal government must be proactive, secure necessary and updated intelligence to deal with organised crimes and have common policy for the nation. It is not solving the problem when one state goes for negotiation and molly-cuddling of criminals and another one goes for shooting them. Nor should one state go for ransom payment and another one going against.<br>They also called on Nigerians to desist from giving ethnic colouration to crime.<br><br>Gumi, who had visited some of the bandits in the forest, had earlier asked the government to grant them blanket amnesty.</blockquote><br><a rel=ugc href="https://www.thecable.ng/breaking-obasanjo-gumi-ask-fg-to-settle-and-rehabilitate-bandits-willing-to-surrender">https://www.thecable.ng/breaking-obasanjo-gumi-ask-fg-to-settle-and-rehabilitate-bandits-willing-to-surrender</a>
