Information available to 247ureports.com through multiple sources within national security agencies in Abuja indicate that the ongoing talks with the Boko Haram Islamic terrorist group appear on a positive path judging by the developing trust between the two entities – the Boko Haram and the federal government of Nigeria.
According to the information gathered, the office of the National Security Adviser [NSA] to the President had engaged the men of Boko Haram in a dialogue in the early days of February 2012 – where the number 2 and number 3 men of the Islamic group was walked into the office of the NSA by a “middleman” for a start of negotiation. Azazi, the NSA to the president, was said to have served the two boko haram men tea. The boko haram men drank the tea.
In the process of the discussions between the boko haram men and the NSA, the boko haram men were told to hold fire as a sign of good faith – and in return the men of boko haram requested for the release of their men and for the security men to halt the arrests of their men.
