Army disowns reports of starvation among soldiers fighting Boko Haram

Published

on

The Defence Headquarters has urged everyone to be wary of “fraudulent fund raising by Doctor Perry Brimah to feed Nigerian army troops.”

In a statement by Sani Kukasheka Usman, Brigadier General
Director Army Public Relations, in a statement on Wednesday described the said doctor as a criminal, who was involved in the fraud “raising venture ostensibly to defraud unsuspecting members of the public especially the international community to fund subversive activities and personal life style.”

The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to a fraudulent and criminal fund raising by one Doctor Perry Brimah, a Nigerian in diaspora, tagged “Global Campaign To Provide Food For Nigerian Soldiers Fighting Boko Haram”. The criminal embarked on this fund raising venture ostensibly to defraud unsuspecting members of the public especially the international community to fund subversive activities and personal life style. The criminal is using the following contact points for the fund raising;

Tel: +1-929-427-5305; Whatsapp: +234-903-420-3031.

The army stated clearly that Nigerian military personnel deployed to the Northeast or any where else in the country do not lack logistics nor food.

We wish to state that the Nigerian soldiers deployed in the North East or elsewhere, neither lack logistics nor food as the fraudster wants unsuspecting members of the public to believe. The Nigerian Army never faltered in providing necessary logistics to troops to the extent of providing extras especially during festive periods. Therefore, this move by Doctor Brimah is nothing but a scam as there is nowhere in the world where troops were fed through donations by members of the public.

The army also noted that there’s no form of hunger or starvation among military personnel, as depicted by the said doctor Brimah.

We would like to further state that there has never been complaints of lack of food by soldiers talk-less of starvation. The so called Dr Perry Brimah or his agents do not represent the Nigerian Army or her soldiers. Whoever believes and falls victim to this criminal act does so at his or her own risk. In addition, the Nigerian Army in conjunction with the Interpol are working hard to declare him wanted and extradite the International fraudster to face justice. Therefore, we request the general public for any information on the whereabouts of this fraudster.

The army therefore urged everyone to disregard such information, and spread this message.
