Boko Haram Declares Ceasefire

The dreaded Boko Haram sect has declared ceasefire after allegedly holding talks with “officials of Borno State Government and leaders of thought from the state”.

“I am announcing this ceasefire with the approval and consent of the leader Sheikh Abubakar Shekau. We, therefore, call on all our members to stop all acts of violence immediately and await further directives,” said Sheikh Abdul Aziz, who introduced himself as the second in command to Mr. Shekau.

Reports say the group declared the ceasefire in Maiduguri at about 3:00 p.m. on Monday.

However, the Special Adviser to the state governor on Media, Isa Gusau, in a telephone interview with Channels Television, said he could not confirm the meeting between the Borno State government and the Boko Haram sect.

Mr. Gusau maintained though that the government has been working on several ways to ensure that the crisis is resolved

Sect To Surrender Arms

Sheik Abdul Aziz urged the Joint Task Force and other security agents to reciprocate the ceasefire announcement as it takes immediate effect.

On the mode of the ceasefire, the second in command said talks with government officials on how to surrender the arms are also on-going and urged members of the sect nationwide to cooperate fully.

The sect has earlier announced ceasefire with much stiff conditions in the recent past as security and government officials rejected such conditions.

Reasons And Conditions For Ceasefire

He said the adoption of the ceasefire is because of the hardships women and children are subjected to and urged members to abide by the directive of the ceasefire and to extend same to others yet to be aware of the development.

He also demanded that detained members of the sect be released and the destroyed mosque of its late leader, Mohammed Yusuf, rebuilt as a condition for the ceasefire.

    If Boko Haram gave a condition that all their detained members should be freed and that their leader’s damaged mosque should be rebuild as a condition for the seize fire, what about those innocent souls that they sent to thier early grave and properties worth billions of naira that they damaged during their senseless voilence. Barbas!

    Interesting development. Let’s see what happens in coming days!

    This development is funny because only a weak government will welcome such arrant nonsense from a sect that has cost a nation this pain/panic/lives and bad name, had it been boko haram was targeting government facilities or those who help destroy the nations wealth it could have been consider a just course but that wasnt the case, instead they poor igbo’s/northern christians and even our young nysc where their victims and now they are calling for seize fire. The fight against terorism is not just for Nigeria government alone to curb rather there is a global unification front against boko haram and their likes, i believe i will be speaking the minds of millions of Nigerians both home and abroad by telling Dr Goodluck Jonathan that he should never accept any offer from haram boko or boko haram unless they will agree to name all those northern money miss road that has back them up with money and arms then we have a deal, when you want to dismantle a mafia click first get the Godfather and the rest will give up. Any thing short of this Jonathan’s government is calling for a represal killing of the northerners by their western and eastern country men respectively because some families in Igbo land lost two soul for what is not there fight or making, government should consider this before dining with the devil. What ever their  reason’s was the Igbos and Yorubas includding the Niger Delta that 90percent of the nations wealth is coming from has suffered worst yet they did not go round killing fellow ethnic country men and if we should judge correctly the under development of Nigeria today is mostly coursed by the Hausa/Fulani Oligarchy why then will psycho rise up from the same North to kill the Igbos and the rest for the fault of their own people? The killings of Igbo’s in the northern part started in the 50s and still goes on, this has to be address and dealth with for the last time because we have lost so many souls in the name of one nation and for the sake of peace but we refuse to remain the sacrificial lamb of the nation and should not be underestimate of our capabilities because an average igbo man knows the truth of what inspired the 67/70 war and never again pray for one but having said that, we are no coward and have the spirit of Ojukwu in almost all of us and our unborn ones too. Long live federal republic of Nigeria !

       bros, you do not need to talk all this because our government is not working in the act of God. if the government wants to do things right in this country it’s not now because we look at face before we talk in Nigeria. they knows but can not do or say because of where and how they got into power. We will soon have new Nigeria, where one can say what he feels and people will look into it before its done. talkless

    d conditions dey r giving is suspicious. also, what about the churches dey burnt down? abi na only mosque dey important?

    This simply means that you know them. Even when the Govt. were looking for them, you kept mute. Is like our leaders are running a child’s splay government. These barbarians are playing with the integrity of Christian Faithful. The innocent blood of Christians, Police and the Soldiers including women and children that were lost during their trigger-happy period most continue to disturb them, for evil that men do must live with them. So they even have remorse for women and children?

    there are two reasons here:
    1. The state of the North now is giving them great concern
    2. There roots are been uprooted in Mali

    while they are setting their home (North) in confusion, the East are at peace but this decision now if accept by Nigerian Government will be a road-map leading to integration of this confused entity called NIGERIA.  
    How will you convince Nigerians that Northern Leader both present and past are not the engineers of BOKO HARAM?

    Those so called “BokoHaram” are not serious, if they can bring back to life the lost souls they took, then we can start talking about building a mosque, how about churches, mosque, infrastructural facilities they destroyed? A soul is important than buildings or wealth. If they can’t surrender without any conditions fine, else they should keep hiding because soon they will be fished out, and condemned too.

    the problem is that we do not have good governments, what talk do they have with those killers? does it means they can not be wiped our from the community?? they are bad eggs and does not need to be a born of Nigeria. there is nothing to compare with the killings they do. so many goods born of Nigerians are homeless, lost of father’s, mother’s, brother’s and sister’s. what will they do about those once. please if only we can tell ourselves the truth. that second in command must be in jail or hang.
