Boko Haram gives single condition for talks

The Punch
4 October 2011

The violent Islamic sect, Boko Haram, has said that it is ready for dialogue with the Federal Government. But the sect says this will only happen if the government releases all its members in detention.

The proposed talks, however, might not lead to the final solution that government had long searched for as the sect’s spokesman, Abu Qaqa, said that it would only be “a temporary measure for peace.”

Qaqa’s statement, issued on behalf of the sect on Sunday, was quoted in a News Agency of Nigeria report.

The statement reads, “Our position remains the establishment of Sharia Law in all Muslim states in Nigeria.

“But as a temporary measure for peace, we will accept to talk with government only when all our members in captivity all over the states are released.”
