A community leader in Michika, Dr. Zira Caleb Filli, said the ceasefire is ineffective there as the insurgents raided Sina village, about 35 kilometers from Michika on Saturday and Sunday, killing at least two persons and burning property.
He urged federal authorities to be sincere in their handling of the agreement, saying the withdrawal of Boko Haram fighters from the areas should be given priority to allow displaced residents return to their homes.
He also advised the insurgents to come for dialogue, saying they should know that most of their victims are innocent people who suffer from the injustice they claim to be fighting.
Filli lamented the suffering of thousands of displaced residents who were forced out of their homes and prevented from farming activities, pointing out that the issue of Boko Haram’s withdrawal is as important as the release of Chibok girls.
Governor Bala Ngillari who spoke through the Director of Press and Public Affairs, Phineas Elisha, said Nigerians should expect some hitches at the beginning of the cease fire before information reach lower ranking insurgents.
“Our position is that we are optimistic the cease fire will be genuine. We know it will take time before the information gets down to the low ranking insurgents. As for government, it is easier for the information to flow from the Presidency to the Chief of Defence Staff and to the soldiers. So we expect difficulty at the initial stage,” he said.
Chairman of Michika LGA, Vandi Pavanza, said he could not comment on the issue as he himself has been displaced from the area.
