Shettima Orders Arrest Over IDPs Food Diversion


Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State, yesterday, ordered the arrest of hoodlums that allegedly diverted Ramadan food items meant for internally-displaced persons, IDPs, in Maiduguri Metropolitan Council and Jere council of the state.

Shettima gave the orders to the police, while flagging off the distribution of 2,250 bags and tins of rice, sugar and tomato pastes at the Lamusila Primary School premises.

He said the arrest order had become inevitable, as 50 percent of distributed relief food items to displaced persons were either snatched or diverted at the distribution centres and affected wards of councils. The governor took time to supervise the distribution for over three hours, before departing for the Government House by 3.30p.m.
