Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has warned Northerners against voting for politicians who won’t grant amnesty to bandits wreaking havoc across the region.
According to the cleric, bandits are warriors who shouldn’t be killed but negotiated with.
The Islamic cleric disclosed this during one of his recent sermons.
“Don’t vote for those who will fight bandits. The fighters are our warriors in the forest……. Our people in the forest.
“So vote for those who after attaining power will call and negotiate with our people (bandits) to give them what they want for peace to reign.”
