declares man wanted for fake fundraising campaign
The Nigerian Army says it is working with the international police to extradite a Nigerian in Diaspora, Perry Brimah back to the country for prosecution.
Army spokesman, Brigadier General Sani Usman says Brimah is wanted for launching a criminal fund raising campaign.
The suspect has opened a Go Fund Me Account to plead for funds to feed Nigerian Soldiers.
Usman says the campaign is “to defraud unsuspecting members of the public especially the international community to fund subversive activities and personal life style. “
He also insisted that the Nigerians soldiers across the country do not lack logistics or food and are not in need of any funds.
“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 statement continued.
“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.”
