Army declares Ahmed Salkida, 2 others wanted for ‘links’ with boko haram


Nigerian army has declared freelance journalist Ahmad Salkida and two others wanted over the missing Chibok girls and links to boko haram. In a statement released by Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman this evening, the army accused Ahmad Salkida and the two others of having information and contact with boko haram and refusing to divulge it to the army. Salkida used to be a boko haram negotiator before he flee to Dubai over threats to his life. He returned to Nigeria in 2014. Read the army statement below;

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 State Nigeria by Boko Haram Terrorists group. Consequently, appeal was made for their unconditional release by the Federal Government. The military also made concerted efforts 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.
However, two recent incidents have pointed to the fact that, there are three individuals namely; Ahmed Salkida, (Ambassador) Ahmed U. Bolori and Aisha Wakil that have information on the conditions and the exact location of these girls.
Therefore, the Nigerian Army hereby declare 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 terrorists activities.
This become necessary as a result of their link with the last two videos released by Boko Haram Terrorists and other findings of our preliminary investigations.
There is no doubt that these individuals have links with Boko Haram Terrorists and have 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.
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.
Thank you for your kind and usual cooperation.
Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman
Acting Director Army Public Relations
