A journalist known to have link with the terrorist group Boko Haram, Ahmad Salkida has said he is ready to hasten his visit to Nigeria if the army can purchase his air ticket.
Saldika and two others were declared wanted by the Nigerian army over connection with the new released video of abducted Chibok girls.
But in a statement he released on Monday reads:
“Clearly, my status as a Nigerian journalist who has reported extensively, painstakingly and consistently on the Boko Haram menace in the country since 2006 is an open book known to Nigerians and the international community.
“Equally, 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.
“As a testimony to the credible and professional values of my access, since May 2015, l have been to Nigeria three times on the invitation of the Federal Government agencies. 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. Thank you.”
