A Nigerian doctor in diaspora, Perry Brimah has been declared wanted by the Nigerian Army for presumably introducing a worldwide fundraising scheme targeted at raising money to supply food for soldiers fighting Boko Haram terrorist in the North Eastern part of the country.
The Army stated this morning that the fundraising is deceitful and is a scam because the Nigerian soldiers sent out to fight Boko Haram in the North Eastern part of the country, are not lacking anything, including food and logistics. Why the fundraising?
Army is planning to work with INTERPOL to get the doctor apprehended as quick as possible. They are also requesting that anyone who have valuable information that can lead to the arrest of Dr. Perry Brimah, should come forward and would be rewarded.

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

We wish to state 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. 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 has 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 are 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.
You are please requested to disseminate this information to the public through your medium.”
From the Army statement, there is need for Perry Brimah to come out to the light and explain his motive for doing what he did. If he is on the run, it means he has a fraudulent motive but if he has a sincere and genuine reason for his actions, he should approach the Army. Hence, the headline everywhere will continue to read, Nigerian Doctor in Diaspora, Perry Brimah wanted by the Army.
