Talk Of Nigeria: Boko Haram Mediator Quits

The Islamic cleric initiating peace talks between the Nigerian government and the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram, has on Sunday said he was quitting the negotiations, because he doubted the government’s sincerity after informations were leaked, Chicago Tribune reports.
The exit of Sheikh Ahmed Datti, a former close ally of the sect’s former leader, could be a major setback for the negotiations, that were still at their early stages.
The negotiations aims to end the long-standing bombings and gun attacks carried out by Boko Haram, in Nigeria’s northern states.
Ahmed said on Sunday, that he had been in touch with top government and Boko Haram officials, who had been willing to discuss a reconciliation.
But he had now decided to pull out of the process, after details of the discussion appeared in the Nigerian media. He did not disclose who he thought had leaked the information.
