Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps(NSCDC) in Borno has said that Internally Displaced Persons are now stealing foods in resident’s houses in the state capital. The Commandant of the NSCDC, Mr Ibrahim Abdullahi,made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Maiduguri today.
Abdullahi said the command had so far recorded 10 complaints of food theft by residents of Jidari Polo Area in the state capital. He said the command had arrested two culprits both aged 25.
According to him, the culprits invade people’s houses on Sundays during the time Christian faithful were in church.
”What is very surprising is that they do not steal anything apart from food items. Anytime we hear of such incidents, we always discover everything to be intact in the houses but the foodstuffs are stolen”, Abdullahi said.
