Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that amid the increasing cases of banditry, kidnapping, and terrorism in Nigeria, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) accused Sheikh Ahmed Gumi of emboldening bandits and their activities.

Eches advised the government to caution the Islamic cleric whose utterances have made bandits more bold, thereby, promoting their acts in the region.
He claimed that the north may be consumed by insecurity since the government has not been sincere in checking the activities of bandits unleashing terror on the masses.
Meanwhile, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, an Islamic cleric, has suggested that the federal government can resolve the issue of banditry in the north.
Gumi stated that the government should begin by establishing a federal ministry of nomadic affairs.

Gumi made this known in an opinion piece on his Facebook page titled, ‘War has never been a solution anywhere, anytime.
He said some Nigerians had died from cholera because of a lack of clean potable water.
