They Have Money To Buy Party Forms But Can’t Pay Ransom To Terrorists – Gumi Hits FG, Says Must Pay Before Release Abuja-Kaduna Train Victims
Renowned Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has advised the federal government to pay ransom to the terrorists holding the 62 abducted passengers of the Abuja-Kaduna train.
He spoke during the special prayers organised for the victims by the Jama’iyyar Matan Arewa (JMA), on Thursday in Kaduna.
Terrorists had on March 28 attacked the train, killing nine passengers and abducting 62 others.
Gumi said, “Just imagine now, people are paying up to N25 billion to buy forms instead of using the money to pay ransom for poor Nigerians who cannot pay. Whatever they want, give it to them, so that they release these people and when they release them then, you have the liberty.
“You have the opportunity to deal with them the way they deserve because when they have captives, you have to tread with caution so that their captives will not be injured.”
