528 fake households found in displaced persons camp

A roll call conducted by the Borno State governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum at the NYSC Displaced Persons Camp in Maiduguri, where families displaced by insurgents from Bama, Konduga and Damboa local government areas live, revealed that 528 households were nowhere to be found.

The move was meant to put a stop to rampant cases of dubious residents pretending to be displaced, who spend day times at the camps to share food meant for displaced families.

In the humanitarian system, a household normally consists of at least six persons who are either related through families or chosen to stay together for the purpose of receiving household aids.
