DOWN AND OUT: The subhuman terror group ‘Boko Haram’ surrenders, seeks dialogue with the Nigerian government
The assertion by the Chief of Army Staff, Major-General Tukur Buratai to make Boko Haram insurgents beg for mercy may have come true so soon as the dreaded terrorists are said to have started making contacts with the Centre for Crisis Communication, CCC, to initiate a dialogue process with the federal government on their behalf.
This is also coming on the heels of President Muhammadu Buhari’s vow that Boko Haram insurgency will be terminated by the end of this year and his recent statement during a visit to the United States that he is open to dialogue from genuine members of the group.
It was gathered on Tuesday that the Sect members have made several calls to the Centre claiming that hundreds of their members who were worn out and hold contrary view to the destructive and murderous activities of the terrorist organization were willing to lay down their arms for amnesty.
The Executive Secretary of the Centre for Crisis Communication, Air Commodore Yusuf Anas (rtd), who made this disclosure today in Abuja, said, “The efforts by some members of the group to get across to the Centre and the discussions we have had, have been encouraging. We have taken measures also to ascertain the genuineness or otherwise of these persons. We believe they are ready for genuine dialogue. However, discussions are still ongoing and nothing concrete has been arrived at, but it is an opportunity to interact with what I call insiders in the Boko Haram group”.
Commodore Anas stated this while speaking on sundry national issues including terrorism, cattle rustling, National Assembly crisis, pipeline vandalism, kidnapping, armed robbery, Radio Biafra, asserting that his team is already in the process of facilitating a meeting with relevant government agencies regarding the overtures of the terrorists.
According to him, “The Boko Haram challenges have continued to become an intractable crisis situation to our nation. Recently, Governor Kashim Shetima of Borno Stated that ‘more than 3million innocent Nigerians from Borno, Yobe, Adamawa and other parts of Nigeria live in deep agony, having lost their sons, daughters, fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, relations and neighbours after being brutally attacked by members of the Boko Haram”.
