No secret talks with FG -Boko Haram

 …As sect restates condition for dialogue
 •Stampede in Kaduna over bomb hoax
Boko Haram yesterday denied ever holding talks with the Federal Government as widely reported. The Islamist sect insisted there would be no basis for dialogue until all its detained members are released even as Kaduna residents scampered for safety over a bomb hoax.

 Its spokesman, Abu Qaqa, was reacting to the Monday’s deadly attack at the Fish Market along Baga Road, Maiduguri, Borno State. There was a shoot-out between the Joint Task Force (JTF) soldiers and members of the sect. Unconfirmed reports said no fewer than 30 people were killed at the market while the JTF claimed eight Boko Haram suspects were killed.

 The Islamists went to the market to retaliate last Thursday’s arrest of their member. Their return to the market yesterday led to the gun duel with soldiers.

 Abu Qaqa, who has continued to maintain that he remains the spokesman of the sect, claimed that none of the members of the Islamist militia was killed, insisting that the military killed innocent people and not “our members as claimed.”

  “We attacked the Baga Fish market in Maiduguri on Monday in revenge on the traders there, for assisting the military in killing one of our members. We have warned that our target is the military, police, government officials as well as non-Muslims. But any one that assists the security forces to identify our members or harm our members will automatically be a target,” Qaqa disclosed.
