ABUJA - A Muslim cleric brokering peace talks between Nigeria's government and Islamist militant group Boko Haram said on Sunday he was quitting the negotiations because he doubted the government's sincerity after information was leaked.

The departure of Datti Ahmed, a former close ally of Boko Haram's founder, could be a major blow for the discussions which were only in their early stages.

The talks were aimed at ending months of bomb and gun attacks by Boko Haram that killed hundreds, mostly in the majority Muslim north of Africa's top oil producer. The group has said it wants to impose Islamic sharia law across a country split equally between Christians and Muslims.
