Boko Haram breaks ‘ceasefire’, kills nine in 2 villages

-

- Advertisment -

On the day Nigeria announced a ceasefire agreement with Boko Haram jihadists, the militants attacked a Nigerian village, killing several people.

On Saturday, they launched yet another attack on another village, all in Borno state.

According to Reuters, the insurgents attacked the village of Abadam on Friday night, killing at least one person and ransacking homes, while another attack on the village of Dzur on Saturday morning left at least eight people dead.

Nigeria’s armed forces chief, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, announced on Friday a deal with Boko Haram for a ceasefire that would enable the release of girls whose abduction in the remote northeastern town of Chibok in April caused international shock and outrage.

Nigeria had announced a similar agreement in the past, but it turned out government had struck the deal with the wrong people.

According to experts close to the conflict, any serious ceasefire would require having Abubakar Shekau or any other leader of the movement at the negotiating table.
