“This Cancer Tumour Must Be Eradicated!”- US Govt, As They Place N2.5 Billion On Shekau’s Head

The Justice Rewards Program, the U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service’s counter-terrorism rewards program, has tagged Boko Haram’s chief, Abubakar Shekau, a cancer tumor, putting a N2.5 billion bounty on his head.

The U.S. released in a tweet Tuesday, March 3, 2020. State Department revealed its bid of up to $7 million (N2.5 billion) for information that led to Shekau’s detention.

“This cancer tumor must be eradicated! For anyone who provides information leading to the arrest of the leader of the terrorist Abu Bakr Group, the U.S. government offers up to $7 million,” read the tweet, attached to the picture of Shekau.

Since the extrajudicial killing of its former leader, Mohammed Yusuf, in 2009 Shekau has been Boko Haram’s leader.

Tens of thousands have been killed by the terrorist group and no less than 2.3 million displaced from their homes in the northeastern region.
