CWN Editor's Note: The Nigerian government has engaged in a secret outreach to leaders of the Boko Haram terrorist group, hoping to reintegrate them into a society, the Fides news service reports. Some Boko Haram members have left the group, accepting the government offer to assist in their transition to peaceful life. Father Donatus Tizhe, a priest of the Maiduguri diocese, tells Fides: “We do not know much about it because it is a secret program, but we are convinced that after so many failures, it will work.”
