Popular Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has disclosed that something made bandits start killing their victims.
Gumi said bandits were out to avenge the killing of their family members by the military through airstrikes.
Speaking at a retreat on inclusive security organized by the Global Peace Foundation and Vision Africa in Abuja, the Kaduna-based Islamic scholar said that the bandits were victims seeking justice.
He noted that it was important for the federal government to meet with bandits urgently before they become uncontrollable.

Gumi said: “We all know that bandits initially don’t kill people. They only kidnap people to get money, but something has metamorphosed and turned them into a Frankenstein monster that kills people just for the pleasure of it.”
Gumi, who is a known advocate for bandits, recently vowed to stop meeting with them.
The Islamic scholar took the stance following the prescription of bandits by an Abuja Federal High Court
