Nigeria offers $1.8 million award for info on Boko Haram

 

Nigeria has offered USD 1.8 million in reward for information leading to the capture of top leaders of the radical Islamic sect Boko Haram, whose terror campaign in the oil-rich nation has claimed hundreds of lives.

 

The Joint Task Force (JTF) of the Nigerian military, that is fighting the insurgents in northern part of the country,has listed 19 persons at the head of the organisation including its self-proclaimed leader, Abubakar Shekau.

 Any person who could offer information on Shekau has been promised USD 317,000 in reward while information on four persons identified as his major commanders -- Habibu Yusuk,Khalis Albarnawai, Momodu Bama and Mohammed  Zangina -- would attract a reward of USD 158,000 each.

 Some 14 other members, who are said to be high on the Boko Haram hierarchy, would attract a sum of USD 63,000.A JTF statement said the men were wanted in connection with terrorist activities "particularly in the north east zone  of Nigeria".
   

The military emphasised that the group has bombed and assassinated religious leaders, traditional rulers,businessmen, politicians, civil servants and security personnel.

 Last week, Britain added another terror group that operates from the north of Nigeria -- Ansarul Muslimina Fi Biladis Sudan -- to its list of international terrorist organisations, with a belief that it was responsible for the recent killing of a British national in the country.

 Members of the British parliament failed to disclose if Boko Haram was to be banned, according to a document made
available to PTI by the UK High Commission in Nigeria.

 Boko Haram wants to install an Islamic caliphate in northern Nigeria though the region has a large number of Christians who are in minority. Boko Haram has been responsible for many attacks on mosques, churches, schools, phone masts and government buildings, and caused more than 700 deaths this year alone.
