The Nigeria Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Borno on Wednesday arrested five Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) for allegedly vandalising and stealing camp structures.
The state NSCDC Commandant, Mr Ibrahim Abdullahi, who made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Maiduguri, said the suspects were arrested in Bakassi camp.
According to him, items recovered from the 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,’’ he said.
