    Radical Islamist group Boko Haram want peace talks with the Nigerian government.

    The jihadist sect have been engaged in a campaign of violence against the government since 2009.

    The group has set conditions on any talks. They must be chaired by Muhamed Buhari, a Muslim colonel who once ruled Nigeria, and held in Saudi Arabia. They also want a former governor arrested.
