Nigeria's President Goodluck Jonathan has come under fire after a discredited truce with Boko Haram.

The deal was being described as a breakthrough, agreed between Nigeria's government and Boko Haram.

The deal was also supposed to pave the way for the release of more than 200 schoolgirls, abducted by the armed group back in April.

Both prospects have since been discredited with Boko Haram making a flat denial in a video released online.

Are peace talks still possible? Or is military intervention inevitable?
