‘Wanted’ Journalist, Ahmed Salkida, Arrested In Abuja

The Department of State Services (DSS) has apprehended Ahmed Salkida, a journalist, who was declared wanted by the Nigerian Army in August 2016.

Sahara Reporters gathered that Salkida, who is said to have exclusive access to top Boko Haram commanders, was arrested at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Monday afternoon shortly after his flight landed.

The website quoted a female passenger who seated beside him as saying that Salkida – who travelled aboard an Emirates Airlines flight from Dubai using an emergency travel certificate – expressed fears about his possible arrest upon arrival in the country.

The website said: “Mr. Salkida further told the passenger that he did not know the whereabouts of Boko Haram leaders or Chibok girls. However, he admitted to receiving two video clips from Boko Haram before they were released to the public.”

This is just as The Punch quoted a security operative as saying:

 “When we declared him wanted, he said he was willing to return to Nigeria but only on the condition that we send him a flight ticket.

“His Nigerian passport had expired but the Federal Government instructed the Nigeria Immigration Service not to issue him a new passport because he could run away after getting the passport. So, he was given an Emergency Travel Certificate, which allows the holder to travel only to his country of citizenship.

“With nowhere to run to, he had no choice but to return. So, immediately he boarded the plane from Dubai, we started waiting for him at the airport.”

It would be recalled, Salkida, a female lawyer, Aisha Waliki; and Ahmed Bolori were declared wanted by the military after Boko Haram released a video showing some of the Chibok girls it  abducted on  April 14, 2014.
