Zulum alleges extortion at Borno checkpoints by security personnel

Tue Jan 7th, 2020 - Borno

Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum has accused security personnel of the Nigerian army and police of alleged extortion of travellers and motorists who do not have national identity cards.

Zulum made the accusation yesterday while travelling along the Maiduguri-Damaturu Road where thousands of motorists were stranded at three checkpoints, as security personnel shut them down.

On reaching the Maiduguri entry checkpoint near Borno State University, the governor met over 1,000 trucks and cars queued up on both sides of road.
