Former Inspector-General of Police and Chairman, Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, Alhaji Ibrahim Coomasie, IGP, rtd, has expressed his scepticism over the cease fire agreement between the federal government and Boko Haram.
Speaking with Vanguard on Friday, Coomasie who served on the just concluded National Conference, was sceptical of the ceasefire, just as he asked of the persons involved in the process, adding that the insurgency has gone out of hand, which would need a genuine and sincere handling.
He said yesterday that for the Federal government and members of the Boko Haram sect to have a genuine ceasefire, there must be the involvement of a neutral and international body.
He said, “the issue of Boko Haram has gone out of hand, when it started, we asked for amnesty, nothing happened, what are the terms of reference for the ceasefire, who are those persons involved, who is brokering the peace, is it an international body, are we talking to the right people? We have lost many lives. If there must be ceasefire, we need an international body that must be neutral.”
