Banditry: FG can create ministry of nomadic affairs - Gumi
In an article that seemed like a reply to Femi Adesina's backlash, Gumi noted that amnesty should be followed by rehabilitation, reconciliation, and reparation of persons who have been severely affected by banditry.
In fact, the Sheikh stated that there is nothing wrong if the government establishes what he called a federal ministry of Nomadic affairs.
He opined that the ministry will address grievances and complaints from such persons, adding that this will also take care of repentant insurgents who claimed that their colleagues were extra-judicially killed after surrendering to the military.
