"Beware of beggars at mosques," NSCDC warns

According to him, the corps has drafted its men to provide maximum vigilance and step-up watch in every Mosque during Ramadan and beyond


The state's NSCDC Commandant, Mr Ibrahim Abdullahi, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Maiduguri.

Abdullahi said people must be wary of such people in tattered clothes, trying to beg in Mosques ``because Boko Haram members have been trying to use every type of ploy to penetrate gatherings to perpetrate havoc.

``Any Mosque you go, there are always regular destitute who normally come around and beg; we are not referring to those ones but any new face seen around should be sent away immediately.

``Security is collective responsibility of all; the public must assist the security agencies to fish out evil perpetrators in the society.''
