While the ceasefire deal between the government and the Boko haram sect has raised hope in many quarters, the residents of Damaturu, Yobe State, have expressed scepticism over the agreement.

“We are skeptical about the agreement,” said Alhaji Baba Buni, one of the residents who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Buni, who lives in Buni-Yadi, but fled to Damaturu under the heat of the terrorists’ attack said it was too early to celebrate the ceasefire agreement.

“We will wait to hear from the sect before believing anything, because, for now, we have not heard from them,” said Malam Haruna Kali, another resident of the area.

There have been calls from different quarters for the government to negotiate with the Boko Haram over the release of the Chibok girls abducted from their school on April 14, 2014, but all efforts have proven abortive.

The new deal is expected to bring peace to Nigeria’s northeast after years of unending violence. But according to residents of Damaturu, it is important to ensure that the terrorists are committed to the deal.

  1. BH’s lack of weapons and funds replenishment from GEJ has enhanced victory for Cameroon soldiers.
    Oritjeshafor’s plane belongs to GEJ. Its failures in SA has brought BH to a standstill which has made a ceasefire compelling because of shortages of weapons and funds.
    If SA hurriedly returns the $15m, it could be used by GEJ to acquire weapons for BH elsewhere to continue it’s terrorist action. SA shld please hold the money for a little while so that the Nigerian military could consolidate on the ceasefire.
    God’s punishment will soon catch them all, including Dokubo, as it happened to their friend, Mohammed Yusuf. May God bless the good people of SA, Cameroon and Nigeria.
