Following his invitation by the Federal Government concerning his remarks on the activities of bandits, Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi, described his interaction with government agencies as “productive” in addressing banditry across Nigeria.

Minister of Information, Mohammed Idris, revealed on Monday that the government considered it necessary to question Gumi, emphasizing that no one is above the law.

Gumi had previously offered to negotiate with bandits responsible for the abduction of schoolchildren in Kaduna State.

In a statement on his social media handle, Gumi reassured his followers, stating that there was no need for alarm and that the meeting was conducted with courtesy and respect.

He called for unity and collaboration to achieve lasting peace in the nation, emphasizing the importance of collective efforts in combating the challenges facing Nigeria.

Gumi’s post on X read, “Last night I got many frantic calls from well-wishers and journalists about a news item that I was interviewed by security. There is absolutely no cause for alarm. Yes, we had a productive interaction on how to curb banditry as we are all trying — each in his own sphere — to tackle the monster bedevilling the nation.

“There was no animosity but courtesy and full of respect. We all need as a nation to unite and work in synergy to achieve an everlasting peace. I thank you for your concern. May Allah continue to protect us from all evil. Amin.”
