Sheikh Gumi could locate bandits’ hideouts but police, army cannot – Reno Omokri

NEWS DIGEST – A former aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has berated the Nigerian Army and the police over the activities of bandits in the country.

Omokri lamented how popular Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi was able to locate and meet with bandits while the Nigerian Army and the Police could not identify their locations.

In a post on his Facebook, the former presidential aide said that the army and the police located the location of Eastern Security Network, ESN, but have failed to go after bandits.

He wrote: “How is it that Sheikh Gumi can jump into forests in Zamfara and Niger, and locate the whereabouts of bandits and killer herdsmen, but both the HQ Nigerian Army and Nigerian police can’t locate and exterminate them?

“But they can locate and determine ESN that don’t kill. Sheikh Gumi took photos with bandits. Governor Masari held negations with them. Governor Mutawale holds meetings with them.

“It seems everyone has access to bandits and killer herdsmen, except our Army and Police. Those ones only know how to find and kill ESN!”
