The governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, ordered a probe into the alleged diversion of rice meant for Internally Displaced People, IDPs, in the state.
Shettima gave the directive at a meeting with heads of all security and para-military organizations in Borno State alongside members of the Borno State Executive Council for Ramadan Iftar at the Government House on Friday night.
He also directed State Command of the Nigeria Police Force and the Department of State Security, DSS, to arrest anyone found culpable in alleged diversion of the rice which was reportedly supplied by the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA.
The Governor gave the directive after a video clio and photographs surfaced on the social media showing officials of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency re-bagging the rice supplied by NEMA.
