Nigeria is working hard to track down Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau.

News reports say the West African country has announced a $10,000 reward for information on his whereabouts, just as President Muhammadu Buhari commits to end the insurgency.

The announcement was made by Brig–Gen. Sani Usman, the Director of Army Public Relations, on Thursday,15 February. Boko Haram insurgency has claimed thousands of lives since 2009 in Cameroon and Nigeria. Many others have been displaced due to the insurgency.

To combat the group, the government of Cameroon and that of Nigeria have come with many strategic moves with the latest being the partnering of both armies.

About three million Nigerians have been displaced and are in dire need of humanitarian assistance.

Buhari’s vow to crush the insurgency when he came to power in May 2015 seems to be succeeding as all territories have been recovered from the insurgents.

The President said the Federal Government was committed to ending the Boko Haram insurgency and other related crimes across the country.

He said that the government was working tirelessly to restore Nigeria on the part of economic prosperity.

According to him, the military will help to improve the fight against terrorism and other sophisticated crimes through enhanced air surveillance.
