365Daily – The Nigerian military has declared  Halilu Buzu, a national of  Buzu in the Republic of Niger, wanted for terrorising Nigerians, particularly in Zamfara.

Defence Headquarters (DHQ) spokesman, Edward Buba, announced this on Thursday, May 16, 2024, at a media briefing on the military’s operations in Abuja.

Buba said the notorious suspected terrorist leader settled in Subbubu Forest in Shinkafi Local Government Area (LGA) in Zamfara.

He further disclosed that the wanted terrorist has a camp for illegal gold mining in Kawayi, Anka LGA, with many boys working for him.

In addition to this, the terrorist is also a prominent cattle rustler and a known arms dealer who only last week, killed 19 villagers at Farar Kasa.

The Defence spokesman added that Buzu escapes arrest by escaping into Niger Republic whenever security agents are close on his trail.

”He is a high-value target, and we hereby declare him wanted. Furthermore, he is a major arms supplier, trusted by arms dealers supplying arms from Libya.

”We have been on his trail, and whenever we close in on him, he bolts across the border into the Republic of Niger for refuge.

”At this time, we are through appropriate channels calling on the Nigerien authorities, regional and international bodies to support in effecting his arrest to hold him accountable for his atrocities,” he said.
