JNI Prevails On FG To Fully Utilize Ceasefire Declaration By Boko Haram

The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has welcomed the ceasefire declaration purportedly announced by a faction of dreaded Islamist sect, Boko Haram and urged the Federal Government to use the opportunity to begin dialogue with the sect.

Secretary-general of JNI Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, in a statement, said government should grab the opportunity because this could help end the uprising.
“JNI under the leadership of His Eminence, Alhaji (Dr) Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, considers the ceasefire proposal by a faction of Boko Haram as a welcome development and an opportunity which should be fully utilized by the government,” the statement said.
“It therefore calls on the government to shun all negative and counter comments that it should not dialogue with the group, what matters is the declaration of the ceasefire, as there are many factions of MEND which the government dialogued with, in the past.
“It is based on these facts that the JNI calls on the government to use this medium and dialogue with the group, so that peace and security will return to the north-east, north-west in particular and Nigeria in general” the statement concludes.


  1. The FG dialogue with Niger Delta militant was because the owned oil and such oil Resource was exploration was done to their detriment in developing Abuja,Lagos n other Northern states,thus their agitation was proper. but,what is Boko Haram’s agitating for?who are the? Who are their target? Theirs is a baseless fight that deserves no attention.
