“The Boko Haram we know are internationally connected, but so far, they’re not Boko Haram; they’ve some elements of Boko Haram, and they presented it to the government.

“They are citizens, they recognize the government, and they are happy now that Boko Haram is not involved in their cause. We should come in now and give them the full teachings of Islam.”
