Nigerian journalist, Ahmad Salkida, who is wanted by the military over alleged links to the Islamist militant group Boko Haram, has released a statement saying he is willing to be questioned by the army.
He has previously denied links with the group.
In the statement, he wrote:
My total allegiance and sacrifice to the Federal Republic of Nigeria is self evident. I have stayed within the creed of professional journalism in my work… I made personal sacrifices for the release of our Chibok daughters.
Finally, the army is aware that I am not in Nigeria presently. In the coming days I will seek to get a flight to Abuja and avail myself to the army authorities. Indeed, my return will be hastened if the military sends me a ticket.”
