Chibok Girls: Army declares three persons wanted

The Nigerian Army (NA) has declared Ahmed Bolori, Ahmad Salkida and Aisha Wakil wanted for interrogation.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col. Sanni Usman, and made available to newsmen in Abuja.

“The world is quite aware of the abduction of several persons, women, children and men, including the female students of Government Secondary School Chibok, Borno by the insurgents.

“Consequently, appeal was made for their unconditional release by the Federal Government and the military in order to rescue them.

“We also appealed to Nigerians that have any information to volunteer to the military or security agencies to enable us rescue them,” it said.

It said that two recent incidents had pointed that, there were three individuals namely: Ahmad Salkida, Ahmed Bolori and Aisha Wakil that had information on the conditions and the exact location of these girls.

The army therefore, declared 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 terrorist’s activities.

“This has become necessary as a result of their link with the last two videos released by the insurgents and other findings of our preliminary investigations,” the statement said.

The statement said that there was no doubt that these individuals had links with the insurgents.

The statement however, urged them to come forward and tell the army where the group kept the Chibok Girls and other abducted persons to enable the army rescue them.

“We are therefore, calling on all Nigerians and peace loving people to give us useful information on their whereabouts.

“We are also liaising with other security agencies for their arrest if they failed to turn up,” it said.
