Abubakar Sheik Gumi ruled out the possibility that
the bandits were being sponsored by politicians or have foreign collaborators. According to him,
the bandits’ sophisticated weapons were acquired with proceeds of kidnapping and
not given to them by politicians or foreign collaborators.
Sheik Gumi said, “Like I said, they are collecting ransoms to buy weapons. Look at the herdsmen in Oyo and south eastern states.
They are not buying skyscrapers or riding Mercedes; they are still in the bush. They don’t want money.
They want their cows, not money.
They are doing that (kidnapping) to raise money just to buy weapons to repel helicopters and
airplanes and to attack anybody that is going to attack them.
You have to understand the psychology of these people.
They are not like our governors that are stealing money.
They don’t want money. For them, cow is better than money.”
However, Gumi said he realised that the bandits have collaborators in the armed forces.
He said, “They have collaborators everywhere – in the armed forces, everywhere.
One of them said, ‘Even this cattle rustling, we don’t have trailers to transport cattle to where they are slaughtered.
We don’t have an abattoir.’
So, there are people who are (collaborating with them).
Even the kidnapping of the people, they said, ‘We don’t know these people;
it is the people in town that will tell us a certain person has money.”
