So Some IDPs Camp Leaders Are Teaming Up With Fraudsters To Defraud IDPs?

A man has been arrested by the Nigerian Security and Civil
Defence Corps in Borno State for allegedly defrauding Internally Displaced
Persons in the state to the tune of N2.7m.
The Corps State Commandant, Alhaji Abdullahi Ibrahim, said
the suspect was arrested while selling fake forms to some IDPs in Maiduguri,
claiming to use the form to provide relief materials for the displaced persons.
He said, “The suspects have sold a total of 9,000 forms to
the IDPs in some camps across Maiduguri at the cost of N300 each, promising
them that they will be provided with special relief materials from Abuja.”

Ibrahim added that the suspect, with some of his
collaborators now on the run, “engaged the services of some agents in the
camps, to deceive the IDPs that special relief materials will be brought to
them from Abuja after filling the forms with their passport photographs
He vowed to interrogate the suspect before handing him over
to appropriate authorities for prosecution.
He however advised those living in the IDP camps to be
vigilant and report any suspicious persons to security agencies.
