“Consequently, the Nigerian Army is offering a reward of N500,000 for any information that leads to the arrest of a suicide bomber, the guide to the suicide bomber, or discovery of the transit house or factory of the suicide bombers.
“We would like to reassure that all information received would be treated with utmost confidentiality and acted upon with despatch.
