Stop insulting our sensibilities - Oby Ezekwesili condemns Sheik Gumi sympathy for bandits

Oby Ezekwesili, former Minister of Education has condemned calls seeking sympathy and love for bandits.

Recall that popular Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, had mentioned that bandits are peaceful people and victims of circumstances who were forced into criminality.

The Islamic teacher had called for a more lenient approach to the bandits, adding that attacking them brings out the ‘monster’ in them.

But Ezekwesili, reacting, described the calls for Nigerians to show love to bandits as an insult to the sensibilities of Nigerians.

On her Twitter page, the former minister wrote:

“ Something is noxiously off around here.

“What is with all this ratcheting up of choruses asking traumatized citizens to “show love and sing Kumbaya” for rebranded terrorists now called ‘bandits’ by their sympathizers?

“Please stop insulting our sensibilities. Please stop it!
