Nigeria and Boko Haram reach ceasefire agreement

In a landmark decision, the Federal Government has reached a ceasefire agreement with the Boko Haram terrorists.

This was announced friday by the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh at the end of the two-day Coordinating Conference Cameroun-Nigeria Trans-Border Military Operations at the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), Headquarters, Abuja.

Badeh said that the latest ceasefire agreement with the terrorists will not affect the accord reached with Cameroun for joint security border operations.

He further directed all the military Service Chiefs to comply with the new ceasefire agreement, which was said to have been signed in far away Saudi Arabia.

He said: "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 cease fire agreement has been concluded between the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Ahlul Sunna Li Daawa Wal Jihad.

"I have, accordingly, directed the Service Chiefs to ensure immediate compliance with this development in the field."
