Nigerian Military Declare 100 Boko Haram Suspects Wanted



In a bid to purge out terrorism from  Nigeria, the Nigerian Military today, declared 100 members of Boko Haram wanted.

While launching the Anti-Boko Haram Terrorists Campaign Materials at the Maimalari Cantonment Youth Centre, Maiduguri, the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai enjoined members of the public to aid the fight against terrorism by providing useful information to the military and other security agencies, on suspects’ hideouts and residences in the North Eastern part of the country.


Information about the “wanted suspects,” according to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai, could be delivered by calling three telephone numbers: 0818155888, 08160030300 and 07053333123 to the military.



His words: “The fight against Boko Haram insurgency was a collective responsibility of all, including the media. These photographs of terrorists’ suspects are to be identified with their numbers attached to each of the 100 photos, while members of the general public could send in more information on the locations or whereabouts of these Boko Haram sect members that appeared in these special photo identifications. Each of the suspects must have either participated or involved in the ongoing war in the theatre operations of Lafiya Dole.

“If any member of the general public identifies the location and whereabouts of these suspects, please contact these three telephone numbers in this launched anti-terrorism campaign materials in Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.”

Of the 100 photos of the suspects launched by the military, most of them are teenagers, with only three above the age of 70 years.

Buratai however noted that all the informants’ sources and identities will be kept very confidential, as rewards for information about the suspects will be provided by the military.
