“It is good news and it is something that we should celebrate.

“We want to see an agreement that will bring lasting peace and unity in the country.

“We want our girls to be released; we want them to have their life, family and education back”.

Kaigama said that he hoped that the ceasefire reached would restore normalc and peace in the troubled states and Nigeria at large.

Badeh made this known at the end of a three-day coordinating conference of the Nigeria-Cameroon Trans-border Military Operations.
