The Nigerian Army has declared that there are plans to extradite one Dr. Perry Brimah, a Nigerian in diaspora, over alleged fraudulent fund raising to feed Nigerian soldiers fighting Boko Haram.

The Nigerian Army said it was already working in conjunction with the Interpol to declare him wanted and extradite him.

While warning members of the public not to fall prey, the Nigerian Army in a statement issued by the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, said soldiers in the battle against Boko Haram were not lacking in logistics or food “as the fraudster wants unsuspecting members of the public to believe.”

Brimah’s alleged fraudulent programme is tagged “Global Campaign To Provide Food For Nigerian Soldiers Fighting Boko Haram.”

The statement by the Army spokesman reads:  “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;

“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.

“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.”
