The leadership of Boko Haram is said to be upset with Australian negotiator, Stephen Davis over his recent revelations
According to reports, the leadership of Boko Haram is said to be preparing a response to Australian negotiator, Stephen Davis over some utterances he recently made.
Vanguard reports that the sect has been angered by the claims made by Davis, who is said to have links with the terrorist group.
Boko Haram is reportedly making plans to set the record straight and reveal its true position on the issues raised by Davis.
A source, said to be a Nigerian negotiator, told Vanguard:
“Nigerians will soon hear from the sect leadership concerning all the issues raised by the negotiator, who, in any case was not hired by the Federal Government to dialogue with the group.
“In fact, what the man has said has really infuriated the sect leadership and they are unhappy with him,” the Nigerian negotiator said.
“As far as the sect leadership is concerned, Davis is being used by some politicians to score some points and they are ready to clear the air on the issues.
Davis has made a series of allegations regarding the inner workings of Boko Haram including claims that the sect is being financed by Nigerian politicians.
He named former Borno Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff and former Chief of Army Staff, Azuibike Ihejirika as 2 of such sponsors while also saying that funds being used to support the sect’s activities were being funneled through the Central Bank of Nigeria.
