Reward for Borno Girls Capture Bella Naija

Nigerian police authorities are offering a $300,000 (about N50 million) cash reward to anyone who can provide credible information that will lead to the rescue of the over 200 Borno school girls abducted by Boko Haram.

This announcement was reportedly made via a statement released by the Nigerian police high command, which states that “anyone who volunteers credible information that will lead to the location and rescue of the female students is eligible for a $300,00 (N50 million reward,” The Guardian reports.

In the statement, authorities also assured the public that “any information given would be treated anonymously and with utmost confidentiality.”

    This is almost laughable if lives weren’t invested. Is it so hard to trace ip addresses? Telecom companies give info from their masts? Is the , nigerian govt truly this ignorant as a collective?

      In this same nigeria they find pple when they are kidnapped. Let stop all this we need help garbage. There are people who know where these girls are. Nigeria doesnt need america to tell them that. They have pilfered the resources the armed forces need to work, they have pilfered the budgets meant to beef up security in the various communities.

      But this is not your regular kidnapping. Your average kidnappers will be a smaller group and will ask for a ransom. That’s typically how they get caught. Boko Haram is not interested in any ransom. And of course someone knows where they are, hence the reward for providing that information. Besides, a reward for this sort of information is common practice everywhere. Who says the idea came from America? And if it did, so what? It’s still a good idea.

    Man, I wish I knew where these people are hiding. I could definitely use an extra $300,000.

    Am sure some low ranked boko haram will surely expose their hideout just to chop that reward, nice idea though…

    What a shame that they are actually tagging a reward to information that they should be the ones giving us! Shame shame! Shame!! Is that sambisa forest under the earth? Or does it not have a scope on the map? why can’t the place be surrounded with the rescuers? Why can’t they surround and close it on them? Shior!!!

      I see no shame in providing a reward. It’s a common investigative practice.. Besides, I doubt these people are still chilling in the Sambisa forest just waiting to be caught. In my opinion, this should have been done earlier but I’ll give them credit where credit is due–at least they’re finally trying to do something instead of just sitting on their hands.

    This is not for bounty hunters heading into Sambisa. Inept Jona says it is too risky for even his soldiers! Terrible state of affairs if the military can’t take down terrorists in known locations.

    The reward is an attempt to outbid potential buyers of the girls and incentivise them to report traffickers in exchange for the bounty money.

    This here is a coup d’état a new age kind. I feel for the families that have been thrown into the middle of this cyclone. The kidnapping of these children has highlighted to the world how unstable and weak Nigeria is . All eyes on Nigeria.

    Pilfer will be putting it too mildly my dear, and yes i agree some people somewhere know where these girls are, the exact figure taken and why they have been taken…i really wonder why the ones who were said to have returned haven’t been interviewed? why the list of names of these kids haven’t been officially published with their pictures?surely the school must have all this information about their students…. why haven’t the boarders been closed and surrounded with soldiers? why has the number of girls missing and found fluctuated right from day one? why even Jonathan’s Wife is summoning the governors wife? Was she the one that was elected? shudn’t that be the president pulling all stops to find out whats going on?…But i really think the quality of human being you are really determines the quality of aids u employ because if from the start of this whole mental behavior by these extremists, none of his advisers advised him to take a step in favour of national security and general protection of dear and precious lives then its a sin….wait a minute whats the true worth of a Nigerian life? if these militants get into Lagos, like we now fear they would, God help us that will be the end of Nigeria….OPC boys will slaughter every okada rider, tanker driver or Mallam they find and that will be the beginning of the end… absolutely sick
