Nigerian army spokesperson, Sani Usman, in a statement released yesterday called upon anyone with credible information to speak out. The Statement read in part;
The Nigerian Army will give out Three Million Naira (N3,000,000.00k) cash reward for any credible information that leads to the arrest of Abubakar Shekau, the fugitive factional Boko Haram terrorists’ group leader. Anybody with such credible information can either contact the Military Command and Control Centre, Operation LAFIYA DOLE, any military location, security agencies or call the Nigerian Army Information and Call Centre 193.
Recall that we reported few days ago that the successful clearing of Boko Haram camps in Sambisa forest including Camp Zairo, through concerted efforts of troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE and Operation DEEP PUNCH II has been yielding tremendous results.
They have also rescued civilians being held hostages by the terrorists, recovered arms, ammunition, Improvised Explosives Devices (IED) factories and making materials as well as other equipment. Consequently, the terrorists are in disarray and scampering for safety while others were surrendering.
Credible information from arrested and surrendered insurgents indicated that the purported Boko Haram terrorists group factional leader, Abubakar Shekau could not bear the heat anymore as he has abandoned his followers, he is running for his dear life.
He is desperately trying to escape the theatre disguised as a woman dressed in Hijab. We reliably gathered that to avoid detection Abubakar Shekau alternates between blue and black coloured hijabs. He was last seen in a black hijab.
The Nigerian army also called upon all the remaining Boko Haram members to come out from hiding, lay down their arms and be treated humanely by the Nigerian Government.
