FG TO COMPENSATE BOKO HARAM MEMBERS
Also there were indications on Sunday that the government might be willing to pay compensation to the sect's members "who were seen to have been killed unjustly."
A very dependable source in the Presidency said that the Federal Government was not willing to miss the opportunity for dialogue as offered by a man believed to be the sect's second-in-command, Abu Mohammed Ibn Abdulaziz.
For this reason, he said, the government was willing to pay compensation, otherwise known as Diyya, to halt attacks by the sect.
He said, "I can confirm to you that it is true that the group is currently dialoguing with the government. The good news is that they are talking and they have promised to cease fire once some of their demands are met.
