Our correspondent gathered that the people have already started making contacts and consultation on how they can return to their towns and villages that are under Boko Haram control but the attacks have forced them to change their minds.
A top government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told our correspondent that internally displaced people in hundreds have contacted him to give them assurance on safe return to their homes.
“But we could not, because, initially we had hope that it’s true but with the attacks in Abadam and Ashafa we felt that something is wrong,” he said
He said thousands of people in Gujba and Gulani have been displaced for months now and the security operatives are yet to recapture the territory.
“So, how can we tell people to return where there is absence of security? Whether ceasefire or not, our prayers is that government should provide security in Gujba and Gulani. Let our people return to their homes, farms and businesses in order to regain back their happiness,” he said.
Sheikh Diyar, who was once involved in dialogue with the Boko Haram, said they were happy when the news of the ceasefire agreement broke but it became doubtful to many when it appears one-sided.
