Top commanders of terror group, Boko Haram, have disagreed over the ceasefire declared by a faction of the fundamentalist Islamist sect. The Punch newspaper learnt that a top member of the group, Mujhahedeen Marwana, who claims to be another second-in-command to the Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, said the ceasefire will not hold because federal troops had of recent allegedly killed at least 47 Boko Haram emissaries in failed dialogue efforts. Only last Sunday, Muhammed Abdulaziz, who also claimed to be the organisation’s Second Commander (southern and northern Borno), had in a statement said they had agreed to cease fire because of talks they had with the Borno State Government.
