Nigeria: FG Asked to Resume Dialogue With Boko Haram

The National Commandant of Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN), Ambassador Dicksoh Akoh has urged the federal government to explore all possible avenues to resume dialogue with the Boko Haram sect and to guard against the avoidable circumstance which led to the breakdown of talks between the two to prevent further violence.

Akoh, in a quarterly press briefing of the corps in Abuja, also appealed to the government to recognise the two members of the Boys Scouts movement who died during the bomb blast at St Finbarr's Catholic Church, Jos.
