Betrayal: Nigerian Government Signs Ceasefire with “Proscribed” Boko Haram Terrorists

July 8, 2013, Updated July 9, 6am

NewsRescue– In what can be described as a betrayal to its people and actions tantamount to support for terrorism and impunity for terrorists, the Jonathan government has announced a ceasefire with the Boko Haram terrorist sect, that the military and civilian JTF has successfully sent running.

Are Boko masterminds worried?

It is suspected that Boko Haram masterminds in high corridors, including serial NSA, spymaster Aliyu Gusau—who is top suspect behind Boko Haram, known for his desperation to rule Nigeria and is married to the sister of Dasuki, the current NSA— pushed this move as their backs are against the wall and they know they are getting exposed locally and globally.

Jonathan proscribed Boko Haram on June 4th, 2013, a ceasefire deal is hence illegitimate

A so-called ceasefire agreement with a group that on June 4th, the federal government proscribed, violates the “Terrorism Prevention Act.”

“The proscription order warns the general public that any person “participating in any form of activities involving or concerning the collective intentions of the said groups will be violating the provisions of the Terrorism Prevention Act”.

“Section 5 (1) of the act prescribes a term of imprisonment of not less than 20 years for any person who knowingly, in any manner, directly  or indirectly, solicits or renders support for the commission of an act of terrorism or to a terrorist group.”

We are yet to verify this breaking news and believe the Jonathan administration will not betray its people and support terrorism with such a reckless act of terror against Nigeria. You do not sign peace with terrorists when you are victorious and the devil is on the run. The ceasefire is clearly a set-up to allow Boko Haram regroup and reintegrate for a future return.

The formal signing of agreement, special duties Minister Turaki said, would be done later.

In a text message response to PREMIUM TIMES’ enquiry, Mr. Turaki said, “We have reached an understanding for ceasefire with them. The formal agreement will follow in due course”.
