THE police yesterday placed a ransom of N50 million on fundamentalist Islamic group, Boko Haram member, Mallam Kabir Umar Sokoto, who allegedly masterminded the Christmas Day bombing of a Church at Madalla, Niger State.

A statement issued by the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO) Olusola Amore in Abuja last night said Sokoto had been declared wanted.

The statement read: “The Police High Command has declared Kabiru Umar (a.k.a. Kabir Sokoto) wanted in connection with Cases of Bombing and Terrorism across the Northern States of the Federation…which resulted in wanton destruction of lives and property.

“Kabir 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 should please report to the nearest Police Station nationwide.”
