Popular Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, has wondered why Federal government is paying so much to purchase forms for elections, but are refusing to pay ransom to the terrorists holding the 62 abducted passengers of the Abuja-Kaduna train.
He advised FG to pay up and free the passengers from captives.
Gumi made this known while speaking during the special prayers organised for the victims by the Jama’iyyar Matan Arewa Youths (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.”
