Capture Shekau dead or alive – Buratai


Nigerian troops currently fighting insurgency in the north east have been ordered to capture Boko Haram sect leader Abubakar Shekau dead or alive.


The charge was given by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai at Camp Zairo, the former Command and Control Centre of the terrorists group.


The army chief also announced a N3million naira bounty on the head of the terror leader for any information leading to his capture.


“Let me say congratulations. But, we must move across to wherever this criminal – Shekau is and catch him red handed. I want you to get him.


“Mr President, Command-In-Chief of the Armed Forces says congratulations to all of you for recovering the Sambisa Forest.


“As far as we are concern, we have come to the end of this operation (clearing the forest of remnants of terrorists).


“What is remaining now is the Lake Chad waters only and we hope to do that (clear terrorists from it) also very soon.


“Meanwhile, you all know these criminals are still on the run; these guys are on the run, you must make sure that you get them wherever they are around this area.


“You must not allow them to escape. Every day, you must go on patrol, lay ambush for them and you go on raids,” he charged his officers.
