New Boko Haram video: Army declares Sakilda, others wanted

In the early hours of Saturday, August 13, the Boko Haram terrorist group released a video showing some of the abducted Chibok girls still in their custody.

Sakilda, known as Ambassador, is said to have knowledge of the actual location of the Chibok girls, especially because of the accuracy of the information he has been releasing online.

Read the Army's official statement below:

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 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.
