We don’t know how to meet Boko Haram leadership – Minister


KADUNA — The Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in Northern Nigeria had no clue on how to meet the leadership of the Boko Haram insurgents, the Chairman of the Committee and Minister of Special Duties, Alhaji Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, SAN, said yesterday.

Turaki  pleaded for help in this regards from willing members of the public or anyone with links to the terrorists to initiate the dialogue process.

He spoke when he led members of his committee on a courtesy visit to Governor, Alhaji Mukhtar Yero of Kaduna State at Government House, yesterday.

According to him: “We want anybody that may have link with some of these people to direct us to ease the process of dialogue in such a way that will ensure transparency and honesty which are the hall mark of this committee. We on our own have no clue on how to meet any of their leaders.

“The committee is in Kaduna State as part of its nationwide tour; particularly in the affected areas for the purpose of enhancing consultation.”
