Finally, there are strong indications that the 218
schoolgirls abducted six months ago in Chibok,
Borno State, by the violent Boko Haram sect may
be released on Monday following a ceasefire
agreement the sect negotiators reached with the
Federal Government.

The Government, through the Nigerian military , had
on Friday said that it had agreed to a ceasefire with
the heartless terrorists group and that the Chibok
girls would soon be released. The deal was
announced by the Chief of Defence Staff, Air
Marshal Alex Badeh.
Nigerian military has struggled to defeat Boko
Haram which began attack against Nigeria since
2009.

The President’s Principal Secretary, Hassan Tukur,
told BBC Focus on Africa that an agreement to end
the Boko Haram hostilities had been reached after
talks with the violent group.
He said, “The Boko Haram members have assured
us that they have the girls and that they will release
them. I am cautiously optimistic.

He said the agreement was reached after one
month of negotiations in Saudi Arabia. The
negotiation was said to have been headed by the
Chadian President Idriss Deby.

Tukur said Boko Haram announced a unilateral
ceasefire on Thursday and the government had
responded.


Tukur and Danladi Ahmadu, who calls himself the
Secretary-General of Boko Haram, told VOA’s
Hausa service that the abducted girls would be
released on Monday in Chad.
The girls are alive, “in good condition and
unharmed,” Ahmadu said. President Goodluck
Jonathan has faced strong criticism over a
deteriorating security situation in Nigeria, with
villages in the North-East Borno State inaccessible
due to the threat from Boko Haram.

The group had demanded the release of detained
extremists in exchange for the schoolgirls. The
Defence Headquarters have directed all
commanders to stop offensive against the Boko
Haram sect.

The Chief of Defence Staff said he had directed his
officers to comply with the ceasefire agreement.
Badeh said, “A ceasefire agreement has been
concluded between the Federal Government and
the Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal Jihad
(Boko Haram).”

Badeh added, “Without any prejudice to the
outcome of our three days interactions, and the
conclusions of this forum, I wish to inform this
audience that a ceasefire agreement has been
concluded between the Federal Government of
Nigeria and the Allul Sunna Li Daawa Waj Jihad.

“I have accordingly directed the service chiefs to
ensure immediate compliance with this
development in the field.”

  4. I should say also believe that mesothelioma cancer is a extraordinary form of cancer malignancy that is usually found in people previously familiar with asbestos. Cancerous tissues form from the mesothelium, which is a shielding lining which covers a lot of the body’s internal organs. These cells normally form from the lining in the lungs, tummy, or the sac which actually encircles the heart. Thanks for discussing your ideas.
