The Nigerian Army says it has published the photographs of 100 Boko Haram terrorist suspects who were declared wanted.
The Street Journal recalls that the Chief of Army Staff, General Tukur Buratai, had on Wednesday in Maiduguri, Borno State, inaugurated the circulation of large posters carrying photographs of wanted Boko Haram terrorists as part of the counter terrorism material packaged by the Directorate of Army Public Relations.
A statement issued in Abuja on Friday by Colonel Sani Usman, the spokesman of the army, said the release of the terrorist suspects’photographs was to enable the public to assist with information on them.
According to the statement, members of the public with credible information about any of the suspected insurgents should report same to security agents.
“Most of the faces on the poster are those of kingpins of Boko Haram still at large, including the supposed leader of the insurgents, Abubakar Shekau.
“Members of the public that have any credible information on any of the wanted terrorists should call any of the phone numbers printed on the posters; the information given would be treated discreetly and professionally,” the statement said.
The large posters have telephone numbers which members of the public could easily call or text to indicate which of the wanted suspects in the numbered photographs they know or have information about, bearing inscriptions in various Nigerian languages.
