Nigeria army releases Boko Haram most wanted list


Nigeria’s army has published photos of nearly 100 people whom it says are its most-wanted Boko Haram suspects. The army urged the public to phone special hotlines if any of the suspects were spotted, as it steps up efforts to hunt down the Islamist militants. President Muhammadu Buhari, who took office in May, has given the military a mid-November deadline to defeat them. Boko Haram has lost most of its territory this year but increased suicide attacks and bombings since May. Appeals for public co-operation are written in English as well as Hausa and Kanuri, the two main languages in Nigeria’s north-eastern areas where Boko Haram is most active.
