The Nigerian government has ordered its troops to halt fighting against Boko Haram militants. According to Nigerian authorities, the Muslim extremist organization has agreed to a ceasefire.
Nigerian Chief of Defense Staff Alex Badeh ordered his troops “to comply with the cease-fire agreement between Nigeria and Boko Haram in all theaters of operations.”
VOA News reports that leaders from the Nigerian government and Boko Haram are now engaging in talks in Saudi Arabia; Chadian President Idriss Deby and leaders from Cameroon are moderating the talks.
Nigerian presidential aid Hassan Tukur said that the talks are focusing on the release of nearly 200 girls who were kidnapped from a school in Borno state on April 14.
“They’ve assured us they have the girls and they will release them,” Tukur said.
“I am cautiously optimistic.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
