Gumi: Abducted Kagara Schoolchildren, Others May Regain Freedom Today by kennyify88: 4:33am On Feb 21
Influential Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi, said on Saturday that the kidnapped Kagara schoolchildren might be released today.
Bandits, donning military uniform, had around 2am on Wednesday invaded Government Science College, Kagara, Niger State and whisked away 27 pupils and 15 staff members after killing a Senior Secondary School 3 pupil.

The incident has created nationwide agitation and worries over the safety of the kidnapped pupils and school staff members, who were whisked away into the bush by the bandits.

In an interview on Saturday, Gumi, who has been in talks with the bandits in the forest, toldSunday PUNCHthat there was a possibility that the abductees might regain freedom today, given ongoing talks between the government and the bandits.
The cleric, who recently held a parley with some bandits in Zamfara State forests and consequently called for amnesty for bandits, told one of our correspondents that the negotiation for the release of the schoolchildren and members of staff was slowed down due to logistics.

According to Gumi, the negotiation does not involve payment of ransom.
Speaking on the phone with one of our correspondents on Saturday, Gumi said,
“What I hear from (our contact) is that they are still negotiating to release them (schoolchildren and staff members) and hopefully, hopefully, we will get them today (Sunday), hopefully.

“Up till now, they have not been able to identify the boys, who (did the kidnapping). You know they are splinter groups. So, when you are dealing with groups like that in a vast area, with no communication, no road, then it has to be slow. But the main actors are ready to negotiate and stop the kidnapping altogether.”

Asked if the negotiation involved money,
Gumi said, “No, no; it does not. If it involves money, it means the same criminality.
They are saying these are our conditions and we will stop this thing. So, negotiation is ongoing and their demands are being looked into, which are very simple.”

According to Gumi, the bandits are mainly asking the state to release their comrades in the custody of security agencies.

He explained, “They have just four people in detention and they are asking for them.
They also need assurance and that is why we are calling for amnesty for them.
They have been fighting for a long time; it’s been more than eight years.

“These people are fighting for their existence because when they go to town they are lynched, when the police see them on the road, they arrest them; sometimes they are executed extrajudicially, so they took arms against the state.
When you give them amnesty, all of them will drop their weapons.”

Gumi is now the official spokesman for bandits undecided I hope Government is monitoring his movement and phones calls because his sudden closeness to bandits and high level of kidnapping that follow is strange O!

"Does Nigeria Constitution allow Amnesty for killers And Can Governor give Amnesty to Criminal, without President and National Assembly approval "

Can you also tell us when the bandits are sleeping so we can... You know

Besides Muslims will not call out their clerics who have become apologists, defenders, spokespersons and time keepers for terrorists now. But when we call them by their real names, fight will start.

This man should stop insulting our sensibilities with "they are being persecuted so they took up arms". In one breath, the northerners are blaming the security forces for being high-handed, in another breath they are against Endsars.

If everyone who has been wrongly treated by security agencies decided to take up arms do they even know what this country will look like now?
That's besides the fact that it does not explain how they got the weapons and started their evil in the first place. I bet this narrative is being pushed so as to get the bloody criminals a soft landing while painting them as victims.

Very soon you will hear amnesty for killers.

What about families that has been slaughtered like rams. What about the women that have been raled and killed, what about the children left orphans now??

If they killed his wife or child will he say this nonsense with his mouth

Hmm...
There is fire on the mountain, and nobody seems to.be on the run....

Chai! It was not this bad until Buhari took over.
.
My surprise is not that Buhari is behaving contrary to rule of law but that the so called powerful n learned lawyers are all mute.

U protest, they arrest you.
After Buhari, whoever disturbs any peaceful n law abiding president like GEJ, it shall never be.......... for that person/group
