Chadian President Idriss Deby Says New Boko Haram Leader Wants to Negotiate with Nigeria



 Idriss Deby BellaNaija
Chad’s President Idriss Deby on Tuesday stated that Boko Haram now has a new leader named Mahamat Daoud, who has replaced former leader, Abubakar Shekau.
Deby also stated that Daoud wants to negotiate with Nigeria, Vanguard reports.

“There is someone apparently called Mahamat Daoud who is said to have replaced Abubakar Shekau and he wants to negotiate with the Nigerian government, Deby said.

For my part, I would advise not to negotiate with a terrorist,” Deby, whose country has been spearheading the regional fightback against Boko Haram.”

While addressing reporters in N’Djamena on the 55th anniversary of Chad’s independence from France, Daoud added, “Boko Haram is decapitated. There are little groups (of Boko Haram members) scattered throughout east Nigeria, on the border with Cameroon. It is within our power to definitively overcome Boko Haram. The war will be short, with the setting up of the regional force, it will be over by the end of the year.”

      Let the Chadian President negotiate with them for his people, why is he talking about Nigeria. That was what he did last time and before you look they attacked again. He should mind his business.

      why they “all of a sudden” want to negotiate shouldn’t be the headache of any right thinking Nigerian. Rather, that the so-called negotiation, should bring long lasting peace in the country.

    If they are willing to negotiate, put down their arms, serve prison sentences and become rehabilitated members of society, negotiate with them. We are NIGERIA, not Chad not Boko Haram, let us not surrender to our baser instincts.

    Negotiate with a Terrorist? Nah. Terrorists are like blackmailers, always coming back to ask for more. They must go the way the innocent souls were massacred cos he who kill by the sword shall die by the sword.
