Herdsmen Are Militants Fighting A War Of Existence They Are Not Bandits Says Sheik Gumi

Renowned Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi, stated that the fulani herdsmen are militants fighting for ethnic survival.

The cleric made this statement known while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, adding that the herdsmen are not Bandits but they are Nigerians.

He said, “It is a complex issue. It is an ethnic war and the solution is dialogue and teaching them Islam. To them, they are talking about an ethnic existence.”

“They are Nigerians. I hate to call them bandits. They are militants fighting for ethnic survival. They want to defend themselves. If there is peace, you will not see such things as banditry, kidnapping among others.

“If you are talking about victims, they have more victims on their side than others. To them, they are fighting a war of existence. If you have seen them (herdsmen), you will discover they have nothing like civilization other than the guns they are carrying.

“We are trying to talk to them to drop their guns. There are peace processes ongoing and they are ready to put down their arms. They are not killing people; they are just engaged in ethnic revenge. The Fulani herdsmen are victims of military excesses. The armed herdsmen are kidnapping to make money.”

“When bandits go to a Fulani village, they go in groups and ransack the village just to revenge. It is a form of revenge. It is not because of criminality, it is ethnic revenge.”
