Boko Haram’s call for cease fire, a point to who their sponsors are.

Filed under: Letters |

The highly notorious Islamic group known as Boko Haram, which has caused uncountable death and destruction over the years, today offered to cease fire. However, not without listing conditions for which such will take place. The conditions for which they will lay down their arms include: That all detained members of their group be released with immediate effect; That Former Borno State Governor, Ali-Modu Sherrif be arrested and prosecuted; That Rt. Gen. Mohammed Buhari will head their negotiation team; And finally, that the peace talk must take place in Saudi Arabia.

I am in doubt of what we should start with. Should we start by clapping and cheering for Boko Haram for wanting to cease fire after killing millions of innocent Nigerians? Or begin by making arrangement on their award and public coronation as grand princes and princesses of the Nigerian kingdom? Maybe we should find a way of waking up all those that they have sent to early grave and let them know that Boko Haram says they are sorry and wished that it never happened. I need a detailed clarification whether St. Rita’s Catholic Church bombing was their way of wrapping up for a peace process?

Lets analyze this conditions:

Condition number 1: That all detained members of their group be released with immediate effect.

The detained members according to evidence and report submitted by investigating committee, committed a crime that worths more than detention. This country of which for now they are still part of, is governed by rules and regulation. The law should try them, if found guilty of the crimes for which they are been detained, they should all be imprisoned. Same should also be applicable to those who wants to lay down their arms.

Condition number 2: That Former Borno State Governor, Ali-Modu Sherrif be arrested and prosecuted.

As for this condition, i have no problem with the FG arresting and prosecuting Ali-Modu Sherrif, after all, its been a long time coming. I and many like myself have been calling for his arrest for a very long time. Be that as it may, asking the government to arrest and prosecute the erstwhile governor is not enough, they have to say why. There must be other arrows that are pointing a different direction, they have to redirect it for a more clear view.

I could say they are calling for his arrest because the chips did not all fall in the right place. He was their highest sponsor this year, so what went wrong? Boko Haram needs to come clear if truly they want to negotiate.

Condition number 3: That Rt. Gen. Mohammed Buhari will head their negotiation team.

Now for me, this is a condition that if we try reconnecting the i’s and and the t’s, we will deduce that they were just a small cock in the machine. The bigger fish all the while, has been Buhari. He has been the one oiling their guns and peddling their car engines. For they to have requested for Buhari to head them in their negotiation, he must have been part of the inner circle of sponsors. I am suggesting that Buhari be arrested and prosecuted, together with Ali-Modu Sherrif.

Condition number 4: That the peace talk must take place in Saudi Arabia.

This particular condition borders me. Fingers has been pointing at foreign support of their actions, none amongst the fingers were steady as to which country it could be. This is a clear prove that Saudi Arabia has been the engine house from which their attack is planned out before execution.

Looking at these four conditions, i will say that the none-detained members of the Boko Haram has indirectly pointed out to the federal government, who and who, has been their driver all along. If you believe this analysis is wrong, let me hear yours.
