Boko Haram Insurgency: Lawmaker accuses security personnel of sexual harassment

A member of the House of Representatives, Abudulrahman Abubakar (Adamawa-APC), on Tuesday alleged that security personnel at checkpoints in the North-East sexually harassed girls under the guise of conducting checks.

Abubakar made the allegation while moving a motion on the need to investigate the activities of security personnel at the checkpoint along the Yola-Girei road in Adamawa.

He said the checkpoint was manned by officers of Nigerian Army, Nigeria Police Force, Nigeria Customs Service, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
