Ceasefire with Boko Haram a Complete Scam – Shehu Sani
The president of the Civil Right Congress of Nigeria, Comrade Shehu Sani, yesterday said that the ceasefire pact between the federal government and the Boko Haram sect was a complete fraud.
Sani, who had initiated talks between the former President Olusegun Obasanjo and the leaders of the Boko Haram sect, said, “It is either government sat with fake persons or the government is part of the forgery.
“The person who made the claim of speaking on behalf of the group is a fraud.”
Sani recalled that it was not the first time such a hoax had occurred.
He said: “In 2012, one Abdulaziz made claim of speaking on behalf of the group and said they had reached a ceasefire over five times, the group disclaimed the ceased fire. In 2013, one Muhammad Marwana also claimed to have spoken on behalf of the group and reached a ceasefire; that turned out to be a fraud.”
He went on to fault the current ceasefire on the number of reasons.
“Number one is that the person addressed himself and the group as Boko Haram while the group does not address itself as Boko Haram.
“Two, he claimed to speak for the group, while it is only the leader of the group that has always spoken for the group. And he even went further by making statements such as ‘our government’, ‘our country’. These are words that the group does not consider using,” he said, adding: “I think government has fallen into a scam or it is part of the scam. Hassan Tukur should be able to explain further.”
Sani said he believes that the journalist, Ahmed Sakilda, is still the credible person to get the correct information from as far as this issue is concerned.
