The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to fraudulent and criminal fundraising by one Doctor Perry Brimah, a Nigerian in the diaspora, tagged “Global Campaign To Provide Food For Nigerian Soldiers Fighting Boko Haram”. The criminal embarked on this fundraising venture ostensibly to defraud unsuspecting members of the public especially the international community to fund subversive activities and personal lifestyle. The criminal is using the following contact points for the fundraising;

In a statement made available to newsmen by Sani Kukasheka Usman, a Brigadier General and Army Director of Public Relations, stated 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.
The statement further stated “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 have 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 is 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”
