Efforts by some states in northern Nigeria to implement safe school initiatives by beefing up security in educational institutions have not worked, as the abduction of school pupils and students in the region has ballooned into a lucrative criminal enterprise.
As a result, the education sector is facing a crisis, with no solution in sight to stem the harm this could portend for millions of children in a section of the country.
One person who has come up with an unorthodox approach to address the crisis is popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Abubakar Gumi. In his view, the government should engage with the bandits or terrorists behind the attacks and grant them amnesty. Naturally, his suggestion has been decried by many Nigerians and security experts who believe a concerted security approach to wipe out the attackers is the best solution.
As the debate continues, Sheikh Gumi enlightens us on why his proposition is the surest way to end banditry and kidnappings in the north.
