According to a news that was published by the Bellnewsonline.com yesterday, it was reported that Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, who happens to be a prominent Islamic cleric, who is known for his contact with bandits and herdsmen terrorizing the North-West and North-Central parts of Nigeria, during an interview with bellnewsonline.com correspondent, has revealed how terrorists are getting the weapons they are using to torment people.
When he was told to reveal the cause of the security problem in Nigeria because, he was once a soldier, Gumi said that the problem is the structure of the security system itself and not caused by religion or tribal differences.
While he was talking, he said, “In the ranks of the army and police, we have criminals. How did they get into the army ? It is because now you cannot get into the security agencies unless you have money. We have criminals in the armed forces.”
Further talking, he said, “These bandits, who is supplying them weapons ? Bandits are being supplied weapons by security operatives. There are bad elements in security services. Even if you are the Commander-in-Chief, if you don’t look at the security system and overhaul it completely, this problem will continue.
