The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Air Chief Marshal Alex Badehhas announced that the Federal Government has reached a ceasefire agreement with Boko Haram terrorist group.

The announcement came on Friday, October 17, 2014 at the end of the two-day Coordinating Conference Cameroun-Nigeria Trans-Border Military Operations at the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), Headquarters, Abuja.

This landmark decision comes after the Islamist extremist group held talks with the Nigerian government in Saudi Arabia.

The ceasefire agreement was also signed in Saudi Arabia, the CDS revealed.

Badeh said that the latest ceasefire agreement with the terrorists will not affect the accord reached with Cameroun for joint security border operations.

He further directed all the military Service Chiefs to comply with the new ceasefire agreement.

He said: “Without any prejudice to the outcome of our three days interactions and the conclusions of this forum, I wish to inform this audience that a cease fire agreement has been concluded between the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Ahlul Sunna Li Daawa Wal Jihad.

“I have, accordingly, directed the Service Chiefs to ensure immediate compliance with this development in the field.”
