Director of Army Public Relations, Brig-Gen Sani Usman said: "The spate of suicide bombings in the North East and in particular, Maiduguri and Madagali metropolis is assuming a disturbing proportion.

"Consequently, the Nigerian Army is offering a reward of the sum of N500,000 for any information that leads to the arrest of a suicide bomber, the guide to the suicide bomber, or discovery of the transit house or factory of the suicide bombers."

Usman explained that "the offer by the Nigerian Army is to further encourage law abiding citizens to actively join the war against terrorists and our collective security.

He added that the Army "would like to reassure that all information received would be treated with utmost confidentiality and acted upon with despatch.

"While we appreciate the cooperation of the members of the general public so far, there is the need to be more vigilant and security conscious to save lives and apprehend Boko Haram terrorists and their sponsors.

"Once again we call on all law abiding citizens to provide useful information to security agencies towards a quicker apprehension of remnants of terrorists still bent on unleashing mayhem on Nigerians," Usman stated.
