Defence Chief Warns FG To Treat Boko Haram Ceasefire Declaration With Caution


The purported declaration, Monday, of a cease fire by a faction of the dreaded Islamist sect, Boko Haram, is still being treated with suspicion as the Chief of Defence Staff, Admiral Ola Sahaad, Tuesday, urged the Federal Government to treat the declaration with caution.

Admiral Sahaad, who spoke with reporters after a meeting in Abuja, also called on government to strengthen its security operations all over the country to avert further attacks by the group.

According to him, although defence officials welcome news of the declaration of ceasefire by members of the sect, it will not rest on its oars in ensuring the security of lives and properties in Nigeria.
