ABUJA, (CAJ News) – NIGERIAN citizens risk prosecution if they deliberately withhold information on a trio the Federal Government has declared wanted for alleged involvement in the spate of kidnappings.
This includes the kidnapping of the girls from the Government Secondary School Chibok over two years ago.
Three individuals, journalist Ahmed Salkida, (Ambassador) Ahmed Bolori and Aisha Wakil, are wanted for allegedly having information on the conditions and the exact location of the more than 200 girls.
They are also alleged to be aware of the abduction of scores of other victims.
The Army has appealed to Nigerians with information to volunteer to the military or security agencies to enable the uniformed forces rescue them.
“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 terrorists activities,” Army spokesperson, Col. Sani Kukasheka Usman, said.
He said this had become necessary as a result of their alleged link with recent videos released by Boko Haram terrorists and other findings of the Army’s investigations.
Usman said there was “no doubt” the three individuals had links with terrorists and had contacts with them.
“They must therefore come forward and tell us where the group is keeping the Chibok Girls and other abducted persons to enable us rescue them.”
The schoolgirls were abducted in Chibok, Borno State.
