The Nigeria Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Borno, has arrested five Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), for allegedly vandalising and stealing camp structures.
The state’s NSCDC Commandant, Ibrahim Abdullahi, who made the disclosure in an interview in Maiduguri, said the suspects were arrested in Bakassi camp.
According to him, items recovered from the suspects include windows, blends, pipes and rubbers, among others.
He said the IDPs were now causing more havoc by vandalising the hard-earned structure that the government put in place.
The Commandant said some of them engaged in prostitution and sexual abuses while some were into illicit hard drug use.
He warned the culprits to desist from such crimes or face the full wrath of the law.
