The Borno Elders Forum has said that the Federal Government may have only negotiated with one faction of the Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram.
The forum made up of retired senior civilian and military officials from the state, said attacks in recent days indicated that not all Boko Haram fighters were aware of the deal.
Spokesman for the group Bulama Mali Gubio said “If they are aware and they are in agreement that there is a ceasefire, I don’t think they would continue attacking innocent people and taking over places,”
“It is either (that) those the federal government is negotiating with are not the Boko Haram but the usual 419ers… or it is just some kind of mockery,”
“If the federal government does not know who the real Boko Haram are, I think they should come here to find out from us,”
“The real Boko Haram who are killing us, who are burning our towns and villages, are not the Boko Haram that a peace deal was reached with.” He said
