A former Kaduna Central Senatorial District representative, Shehu Sani, has opined that the Nigerian government’s failure has given room for Sheikh Abubakar Gumi’s intervention.
In a tweet on Saturday, the rights activist stated that the government has woefully failed in securing the lives of the people, therefore creating a vacuum that Gumi stepped into.
His comments come after the popular Islamic scholar received backlashes for his role in negotiating with bandits in the northern part of the country.
Recall that about 40 students and staff members of Government Science College, Kagara, Niger State were abducted by bandits which prompted Gumi’s intervention.
His actions however have attracted different perceptions from Nigerians across the board as some wonder how he’s able to set up meetings with the bandits.
Sani, in a tweet to his 1.8M followers said, “If the Government had not woefully failed in securing the lives of the people,there could not have been Sheikh Gumi’s intervention.He just stepped into a vacuum.”

In reaction to the tweet,@Abbafullata “I agree with you sir, we should appreciate Sheikh Gumi’s effort. However,the most dangerous ppl are those that are going against the effort of peace mediation. Whether you like it or not, these miscreants have been the collateral of the failed system. We need to educate them.”
Another user, @AnDrewVanD1 said, “What’s baffles me most is that how can sheikh gumi locate those bandits yet our security officers can’t, or does he used Google map ti locate them or what? Things are deteriorating yet the presidency mute.”
@SydneyOfficia said, “On What Capacity Is Gumi Doing What He Does? That Is Illegal And Questionable.”
While @DoctorEmto added that the “FG, some Northern governors, religious leaders like Sheikh Gumi political elites like you are all enablers… What do you mean by intervention? Security and Insecurity are being handled by the North. No plans for them to be disarmed and now they’ve kidnapped 17 women. Imagine”
