Following the release of a fresh video by the Boko Haram insurgents showing the abducted Chibok schoolgirls, the Nigerian Army on Sunday declared the Nigerian journalist who revealed the fresh video, Ahmad Salkida, wanted.
Two other persons, including a woman, were also declared wanted in connection with the over 200 missing girls abducted by Boko Haram since 2014.
They are Ambassador. Ahmed U. Bolori and Aisha Wakil.
A statement issued by the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Col. Sani Usman, said the wanted persons have information on the conditions and the exact location of those girls.
“Therefore, the Nigerian Army hereby declares the two gentlemen and the lady wanted for interrogation.
“We are relying on the relevant laws of the land, and in particular the Terrorism Prevention Act 2011 (as amended) where Nigerians could be punished for failure to disclose information about terrorists or terrorists” activities.
”This becomes necessary as a result of their link with the last two videos released by Boko Haram terrorists and other findings of our preliminary investigations.
“There is no doubt that these individuals have links with Boko Haram terrorists and have contacts with them.
“They must therefore come forward and tell us where the group is keeping the Chibok girls and other abducted persons to enable us rescue them,” Usman said.
He called on Nigerians and other peace-loving people to give useful information on the whereabouts of the suspects.
“We are also liaising with other security agencies for their arrest if they fail to turn up,” he said.
