Training materials donated by UNICEF were allegedly looted and sold in Adamawa
Officials from the Adamawa State Government have been accused of stealing donated learning materials from the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF).
The Adamawa state consultant of education to UNICEF, Mr. Joel Isah, made the allegations on Tuesday while describing the act as sabotage.
Daily Episode reliably gathered that UNICEF received information regarding the learning materials donated for the vulnerable children who are either in the IDP camp or low-income communities were looted and sold in several locations for selfish reasons.
In his statements, Mr. Joel stated that the organization had been surprised to receive such an inhumane act of looting.
He goes on to say that UNICEF will constantly collaborate with the Ministry of Education, State Universal Basic Education, and other relevant agencies.
Efforts are being made to prevent similar incidents in the future. UNICEF has opted to redistribute the materials to some benefited local governments. About eight local governments have confirmed receiving their quota.
Books, backpacks, and mathematics sets are among the distributed learning materials.
He begged the government and other authorities, on the other hand, to carry out their jobs with fear and justice.
Anyone caught looting or selling the donated learning materials by UNICEF will bear the consequences of his or her actions.
