Boko Haram open talks with FG – VOA


The Voice of America (VOA), Hausa Service, has announced that the Jama’atu ahlis sunnah lil da’awati wal wal jihad, otherwise known as Boko Haram Islamic sect has agreed to open talks with the federal government to end the continuous violence in the Northern part of Nigeria.

The VOA, in a report on Tuesday, quoted one Abu Mohammed, who claims to be the second in command of the sect, saying that negotiations have already commenced with the government, with a view to restoring peace in the northern part of the country.

Mr. Mohammed contacted a VOA reporter in Mecca, via the telephone, where he said the sect is ready to stop all attacks during the period of negotiations, as long as the Federal government is “serious and sincere.”
