ABUJA – Nigeria is negotiating behind the scenes for some time with terreurbeweging Boko Haram about a file. The goal is a permanent ceasefire. The minister for Information said on Sunday.
The government of president Muhammadu Buhari has already often been expressed that Boko Haram wants to talk. It is for the first time in years that now it is said that this actually happens.
Boko Haram terrorizes since 2009 Nigeria and neighbouring countries as Chad, Cameroon and Niger with the aim of establishment of an islamic state. The actions of the militants have tens of thousands of human lives cost. More than two million people fled.
