NGOs use photos of starving IDPs to defraud Foreign Donors

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has revealed that local Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in the country are using the circulating photos of starved Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to defraud international donors and mobilize funds.

The funds are said to be diverted by the NGOs to their own personal use.

"Some local #NGOs use pictures of starving #IDPs to defraud foreign donors by mobilising funds,which they divert to their own use. #Gov Borno," the agency said.
