The Nigerian Army has declared wanted 100 suspected Boko Haram members.
The Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai disclosed this on Thursday, at the launch of Anti-Boko Haram Terrorists Campaign Materials at the Maimalari Cantonment Youth Centre, Maiduguri.
He urged the general public to furnish the military or other security agencies with information on the hideouts and residences of the suspects.
He said: “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.”
According photos of the suspects, most of them are teenagers - with three of them over 70 years old.
However, Buratai assured that informants' sources and identities would be kept confidential, adding that informants would also be rewarded by the military.
He gave three telephone numbers for good citizens who may have information about the suspects - 0818155888, 08160030300 and 07053333123 to the military.
