Nigerian Army Declares Shekau, Al-Barnawi, 79 Other Top Boko Haram Fighters Wanted


The Nigerian Army on Wednesday declared another batch of 81 Boko Haram terrorists and other insurgents wanted for various crimes relating to insurgency.

This was done at the Chabbal Super Camp in Maiduguri, Borno State at a programme attended by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai, and Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno.

Unveiling the list, Theatre Commander of Operations Lafiya Dole, Maj. Gen Farouk Yahaya noted that it is not the first time the list will be unveiled but it gets reviewed periodically.

Prominent on the list were names of terrorists including Abubakar Shekau and Abu Mus’ab Al- Barnawi.

Others are Modu Sulum, Umaru Tela, Iman Balge, Abu Umma, Mallam Bako(Hisbah), Abu Dardda, Ibrahim Abu Maryam and many others.

“We are here to witness the launching of four batches of wanted Boko Haram terrorists, as you know, this is not the first time, so we will lunch third batch of wanted terrorists shortly.” Yahaya noted.

Governor of Borno State, Zulum in his remarks, called on the terrorists, bandits, kidnappers and other insurgents to give peace a chance.

The banners containing names of the suspects were later handed over by the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai to Gov. Zulum.
