There are indications that the dreaded Boko Haram sect may enter into dialogue with the Federal Government, if a third party country is involved, Sunday Tribune has reliably gathered.
A very competent source within the administration, who has been working on creating a link and dialogue path with the sect, told Sunday Tribune that the sect leadership appeared to distrust the government and established Islamic leaders in the country, hence its hint of preference for a foreign mediator.
From all first class traditional rulers and sultan to elected political leaders from the North, the sect reportedly considers the Northern leadership as agents of the Federal Government who cannot be trusted to represent it in negotiated settlement with the government.
