A Nigerian Television Authority Network News monitored at 9 pm on Tuesday said the sect indicated its readiness for talks via a video tape brought to the station by two masked men.
Although, the authenticity of the video is being investigated by security agents, as it came on a day that multiple blasts rocked Kaduna with the armed forces as target.
The negotiators appointed by the group to talk on its behalf were also named in the video.
The tape which NTA claimed was delivered by an unidentified source featured two figures, fully masked in black. Only the voice of one was heard, while the other was silent.
The speaker who did not identify himself said: “On behalf of myself and my organisation, we hereby confirm and accept the statement made by Mr. President (Goodluck Jonathan). We have people we respect and trust to mediate between us and the government.
“These persons are Sheik Abubakar Gemuno, Dr Shettima Mongunu, Alhaji Bukar Ibrahim, Alhaji Junadu Idris and a peace broker who is also our mother Barrister Aisha Al Wakil.
“The decision taken by these men (members) can bring a change to the entire situation. Their word is our word. We trust and respect them.”
