Boko Haram: US places N2.5bn bounty for Shekau’s arrest
By Steve Oko
End appears in sight the Leader of the dreaded Boko Haram terrorist organisation as the United States of America has announced $7.5 million (about N. 5billion ) bounty on his arrest.
The US Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service is offering a reward of up to $7m (N2.5bn) for information leading to the arrest of Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.
The Rewards for Justice Program, which is the counterterrorism rewards program of the US Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service, said this in a tweet on its official Twitter handle on Tuesday.
The tweet reads, “The United States Department of State offers a reward up to $7m for information leading to the arrest of the terrorist, Abubakar Shekau, leader of Boko Haram.
Analysts believe that the US action was an indication that Washington is no longer pleased with Nigeria’s softness on the terror group.
There has been suspicion that the Nigerian Government may not have been sincere with the fight against Boko Haram.Steve Oko, Publisher/C.E.O, WaWa News Global.
