Police declare escaped Boko Haram suspect wanted, places N50m bounty on him.

Following President Goodluck Jonathan’s order to the Inspector General of Police, Hafiz Ringim to produce the escaped Boko Haram mastermind, the Nigeria Police force yesterday declared him wanted and placed a N50 million reward for information leading to his arrest.

Kabir Umar, aka Kabir Sokoto had escaped under suspicious circumstances from police custody on Monday, 24 hours after his arrest.

Sokoto is alleged to be the mastermind behind the Christmas Day bombing of the St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Madalla, Niger State that killed 40 worshippers.

A statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer read:

“The Police High Command has declared Kabiru Umar (a.k.a. Kabiru Sokoto) wanted in connection with cases of bombing and terrorism across the Northern States of the Federation, especially the Christmas-Day bombing of a Church at Madalla, Niger State which resulted into wanton destruction of lives and property.

“Kabiru Umar who hails from Biu, Borno State, was last known to be residing at Bulletin Quarters, Abaji, FCT. He is aged 28 years, fair in complexion and speaks English, Hausa and Arabic languages fluently. The Nigeria Police has therefore placed a monetary reward of N50 million for anyone who has useful information regarding whereabouts of the suspect or that will lead to his arrest. Such person should please report to the nearest Police Station nationwide”.

The Senate yesterday ordered its committee on Police Affairs to immediately commence full investigation of the circumstances that led to Kabir Sokoto’s escape.

  3. Evil cannot be concealed forever.Those bigfish behind bokoharam have forgotten the era of dsp iyammu and the notorious anini in the 80’s. In àshort while we’ll know whether they’re spirits or humans .4 ur #50m,give it to the jenior dedicated officers thàt put in their lives to càtch him intially,only to be released immediately after ur phone conversations.Evil and occultic men in leadership.

  5. He who dine with the spirit must have a long spoon in his hands. Govt officials in Nigeria are all evil minded animals. If the true story of this shameful letdown by the police will be uncovered, u will sure be afraid of the next man to u. Even the president. If he thinks he knows nothing about all these boko haram sects existence and all dat. Let him arrest the IG and prosecute him along with his family members 4 betraying the entire nation’s security whether the escapi is found or not. Wat about the other senator implicated the other time ago, wat happened in his case? Does such people deserves to live even up to 24hours in this country after been discovered if the govt is sincere?
