The Nigerian Senate begins the probe into the alleged diversion of five billion naira provided by the Federal government for internally displaced persons in the Northeast.
Vanguard reports that the Senate was disappointed by the Federal government’s handling of the plight of the IDPs.
The Senate also listed 21 companies contracted by the FG to supply food items and logistics for the IDPs. They reported that there’s nothing on ground showing that they carried out these agreements especially with reports that 150 children die every 24 hours.
In light of this, the Senate set up a 10 man committee, headed by Senator Shehu Sani, to ascertain how much the released to the Presidential Initiative on the North East and how they disbursed said fund.
