The northern based Islamist Boko Haram sect terrorising the north has again given two conditions under which to ceasefire from the bombings and killings in different parts of the north.
A source close to the sect told P.M.News in an exclusive chat that members of the group have agreed to a ceasefire but with a condition that all its members in detention be released first .
Secondly, the group wants the safety and security of all members whose names would be given to the Federal Government through Dr. Ahmed Datti, President of Supreme Council of Sharia of Nigeria, guaranteed.
The choice of Dr. Datti, according to the source, was informed by the fact that late slain leader, Mohammed Yusuf, served as a member of the Sharia Council under Datti’s leadership and so he could be trusted.
The source, who spoke to P.M.News under anonymity, also informed that the sect members have also agreed that once the two conditions are met, within four weeks they would put an end to the hostilities .
However, he hinted that members of the sect said failure to heed the conditions would amount to more hostilities.
He disclosed that the sect are now ready to dialogue with the Federal Government through Ahmed Datti, Shettima Monguno and other three northern leaders.
