One of the men who the army declared as wanted, Ahmed Umar Bolori (Ambassador) has reported on Facebook that he tried to call the army after he heard he was wanted severally but non of the army chiefs picked his call. He succeeded in getting one General Abubakar DMI through text messages and the man responded that he should go home and report tomorrow (that is 10am today).
The Nigerian Army declared three of them wanted yesterday after Boko Haram released video of the Chibok girls asking government to release their members in exchange for the Chibok girls and showed video 0f some of the girls who they claimed army jet bombarded where they were kept and several of them killed.
Professor Farook Kperogi, a US based famous Nigerian journalist wrote on Facebook that:
It is now self-evident that no one in the highest reaches of governance and security enforcement in Nigeria is thinking. How can you declare people “wanted” when you haven’t even invited them for questioning–and they haven’t resisted your invitation? I just got off the phone with Ambassador Ahmed Umar Bolori, one of the people declared “wanted” by the Nigerian military. He told me he called the Chief of Army Staff, the spokesperson of the Nigerian military who announced him “wanted,” and other top military officers and said he was at their beck and call and didn’t need to be declared “wanted” since he wasn’t in hiding. He then went ahead and turned himself in at the top military barracks in Maiduguri, waited for more than two hours, but there was no one to interrogate or arrest him. He called and texted the chief of army staff and the military spokesperson again and pleaded with them to send someone to detain, arrest, interrogate, or do whatever they wanted to do to him because he wanted to clear his name. He was later told to go home and return the following day! They told a “wanted” man to go home and come back the next day! Can you believe that? First, he is personally known to the chief of army staff and to the military spokesman. These people also know his home in Maiduguri. They know where to get him if they want to. yet they declared him “wanted.” Is there any parallel to this level of puzzling incompetence in the world? Who declares people “wanted” without any interest in seeing, much less interrogating, them?
A lot of Nigerians have been outraged at the sudden declaration of the trio as wanted and a lot have said they know too much, especially Ahmad Salkida, but Ahmad Salkida have always made himself available anytime the government summon him and has always wanted to help in one way or the other.
