Three fake Boko Haram leaders in court for fraud

Three people posing as Boko Haram leaders have been arraigned before the Maiduguri High Court for allegedly defrauding a member of the Presidential Committee on Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North of N70 million, according to reports.

They were paid part of the money on the first date of their meeting with Wakil.
