The Director, Army Public Relations, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, in a statement on Wednesday, was reacting to Gumi’s allegations on ARISE TV Morning Show on Wednesday.
Speaking on Arise Television programme: “Morning Show,” Gumi recalled that when the Niger Delta militants were blowing up pipelines, they were offered amnesty and were eventually given pipelines protection contracts.
Gumi said negotiation was ongoing for the release of the students of the privately-owned university abducted by bandits on April 20, 2021.
Pantami has however been struggling to disclaim the allegations. To buttress his declamation of the allegations, the Minister has been fighting frenetically to defend himself. For instance, though he admitted that he had been an Islamic preacher since age 13, he claimed that, in the last two decades, he had been invited and travelled to countries like Niger Republic and Katsina, Borno and Gombe among other northern states and his preaching was a singeing denouncement of Boko Haram’s ideology and Islamic fundamentalism.
Obasanjo and Gumi made this known in a jointly signed communique issued after they held a closed-door meeting at the Obasanjo Presidential Library, Abeokuta, on Sunday.
Solutions to banditry, they emphasized, must involve ‘stick and carrot’ approach.
