Army declares journalist, Salkida, wanted for ‘links’ to Boko Haram

Ahmad Salkida

The army has declared Ahmad Salkida, the Nigerian journalist known to have access to access to top Boko Haram commanders, wanted.

Also wanted by the army are Ahmed Bolori and Aisha Wakil.

Sani Usman, army spokesman, disclosed this in a statement, saying the trio are being wanted for having links with Boko Haram.

“The trio have been declared wanted because they are in possession of information on the conditions and the exact location of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram from Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State, in 2014,” the statement read.

“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 activities.

“This becomes necessary as a result of their link with the last two videos released by Boko Haram terrorists and other findings of our preliminary investigations.

“They must, therefore, come forward and tell us where the group is keeping the Chibok Girls and other abducted persons to enable us to rescue them.”

Salkida is currently on self-imposed exile.
