NSCDC discovers 40 fake NGOs exploiting IDPs in Borno state

The commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) Borno state chapter, Ibrahim Abdullahi, says the agency has discovered at least 40 fake non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that are exploiting internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Borno State.

In an interview with NAN over the weekend, Abdullahi said;

“We discovered that many of them who are individuals with office are only interested in posing with IDPs going through hardship to access funds from donors. We discovered that some of them, currently occupying most of the big hotels in town, are only interested in defrauding their donors by sending fake data, messages and pictures via Internet so as to access fund. When we interrogated some of them, they said they just came into the town and were trying to figure out the problems to enable them bring in their intervention”he said
