The Nigeria Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) arrested five internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Borno state on Wednesday, saying there are “bad eggs” among IDPS.
In an interview with NAN, Ibrahim Abdullahi, Borno commandant of the corps, said while some displaced persons have been engaging in prostitution, others are into drug abuse.
He said items recovered from the arrested suspects include windows, blends, noggin roofs, pipes and rubbers, among others.
“The IDPs are now causing more havoc by vandalising the hard-earned structure that the government put in place.
“There are bad eggs among the IDPs who can do anything to get money.
“Some of them engage in prostitution and sexual abuses while some are into illicit hard drug use.
“The command warned the culprits to desist from such crimes or face the full wrath of the law.”
