Kaduna-based Islamic cleric, Sheik Mohammed Guni met with Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani-Bello on Wednesday on the security situation in the state, the Nation says.

Gumi who was on his way to Kebbi State, told reporters after the meeting that:

“the governor and I spoke on several ways to deal with insecurity in a holistic manner and find solutions to the insecurity problem in the state.’

He promised to be at Kagara where the pupils were abducted. Gumi has met with bandits in Kaduna and Zamfara states to persuade them to drop their guns and embrace peace.

27 students were kidnapped by terrorists on Wednesday morning alongside some staff at the Government Secondary School, Kagara in Niger state.

The presidency had since sent a dispatch team to the state for assessment.
