It had declared 202 insurgents wanted in two batches in 2015.
The poster, with the inscription, written in English, Hausa and Kanuri languages, is the third edition of such posters, it has telephone numbers which the public could easily call or send text messages to, to indicate which of the characters they know or have information on.
Displaying the posters at the headquarters of Operation Lafiya Dole, Lt. Gen. Buratai said many terrorists whose names were on the list of 202 terrorists released last year had either been identified and arrested or killed.
He said that the Nigerian Army had achieved significant progress in the fight against the terrorists by degrading their combat power as well as decimating their ranks.
The army chief restated that 60 per cent of the remnants of the terrorists were not Nigerians and appealed to the citizens to contribute to the efforts to flush them out of the country.
