Leaders of the Jama’atu Ahliss-Sunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad, popularly known as Boko Haram, have told Daily Trust in an interview that the dialogue being offered to them will not be possible under atmosphere of the threats of use of force by security agencies.
Spokesman for the group Abu Zaid said, “A true believer will not allow himself to be attacked twice.”
The interview was conducted by phone and email in Hausa language. A Daily Trust reporter who has been reporting the activities of the group gave the questions by phone to Abu Zaid, who has been speaking on behalf of the sect.
