A socio-political organisation, Coalition Against Terrorism and Extremism, on Thursday in Abuja called on the Federal Government to shun any form of negotiation with the Boko Haram sect.
The organisation also commended the military for wiping out the Boko Haram sect from the North-East.
“Any attempt to negotiate with terror groups in the country will rather serve as open invitation from other miscreants to hold the nation’s peace to ransom in anticipation of financial and other selfish aggrandisement as suggested for Boko Haram”, CATE said.
The Secretary-General of CATE, Daniel Obaje, made the demand when he led a protest march to the Ministries of Defence and Information and the Nigerian Army Headquarters.
He advised the government not to allow any group or sect to hold the nation to ransom through unreasonable demands.
