Controversial Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has revealed that bandits are ready to drop arms if government can provide education and other basic amenities for Fulani herdsmen across the north and by extension, Nigeria.
Gumi dropped the hint while on inspection tour of Sheikh Uthman Bin Fodio Centre, a school built by Sheikh Gumi Mosque Foundation Limited, at Kagarko Grazing Reserve near Kohoto village.
Gumi opined that if the centre, which is designed to educate herdsmen, is replicated everywhere in the country, Nigerians will live in peace.
The cleric noted that instead of spending billions on military hardware to fight the bandits, Nigeria should spend such money on schools and teachers.
