JUST IN; Security personnel working with armed bandits – Sheikh Ahmed Gumi

Popular Islamic cleric, Ahmed Gumi, on Wednesday, alleged that some security agents from various security agencies were colluding with bandits terrorizing the Northern part of the country.

The cleric, who is known to have access to bandits, made the allegation in a chat with Arise TV on Wednesday, June 23, 2021.

According to Gumi, the bandits won’t be able to have a wide array of weapons and other sophisticated equipment if it wasn’t for the security agents who he said were giving them weapons and information.

He said, “These bandits, if you don’t know, are cooperating with a lot of bad elements in our security system. This is a business. So many people are involved, you’ll be so surprised.”

“They were caught in Zamfara; they were caught everywhere, how do these big weapons cross our borders? How can these big weapons cross our borders and get into the forest without the cooperation of some bad element of the security operatives assisting them? It’s not possible.”

“If I give you the same amount of guns can you take it to the UK? You can’t, because the security is alert.”

According to Gumi, one of the ways for the federal government to eliminate banditry and other ill social vices in the country is to overhaul the security system.

“Part of fighting this banditry is to overhaul our security system, ” he said.
