The rate of banditry in Nigeria has become so much concern to worry about for the Federal Government, and also citizens who have found it very difficult to live freely without fear of not been attacked by bandits.

Most of their activities these days are abduction which has been seen as lucrative business for them as more ransoms are being paid out to get the freedom of abducted victims.

However, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, an Islamic cleric who spoke with bandits during a meeting with them in Niger state in respect of the abducted victims warns journalists to stop calling them criminals, if they really want them to drop down their weapons and surrender.

It was gathered that Gumi said this during an interview with Arise television some hours ago where he blames media for contributing to the problem of insecurity as a result of the bad name they call bandits.


However, hours Gumi issued warning to journalists to stop using criminal words to describe bandits, the president of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to his statement.

According to Buhari, he said regardless of the name by which they are called, bandits must be treated as criminals, and in that effect, he has directed his new security chiefs and the other security agencies to tackle criminals terrorising the country.
