Following the revelations made by Australian Negotiator, Stephen Davis about the dreaded Boko Haram sect, there are reports that the sect have plans to carry out their next plan in a bid to set the record straight concerning the controversial issues.
Vanguard source said on Sunday night that the leadership of Boko Haram was upset by most of the claims made by the negotiator and was set to make a categorical position on all the issues raised by Davis in the media.“
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.
It would be recalled on August 31, it was reported that the Australian Negotiator, Stephen Davis made some shocking claims about activities of the Islamist group, Boko Haram.
Stephen Davis who said he had knowledge about the actions of the sect told SaharaReporters that Boko Haram runs about six major camps in the northeast and neighboring countries, adding that 700 fighters inhabited each camp. In addition there are a range of smaller camps within Borno State, which are often temporary and to which kidnapped girls are taken to be used by the insurgents.
Dr. Davis stated that, from experience, any terrorist group that has lasted more than eight years after its formation would likely exist for another 20 or more years before it can be dismantled. It thus becomes embedded for a generation and the likelihood of dismantling it was very low.
“If we don’t do our utmost now to dismantle Boko Haram then we may not be able to do so for another generation. That is a very gloomy scenario for Nigeria.”
He also said former governor of Borno State, Modu Sheriff and former Chief of Army Staff, General Onyeabo Azubuike Ihejirika are Boko Haram sponsors.
However, the Federal Government  has since denied hiring Stephen Davis as a Boko Haram Negotiator and  have no plans of prosecuting General Ihejirika and Ali Modu Sheriff based on the allegations made by Australian negotiator Stephen Davis.
