Army Accuses UNICEF Staff Of Spying, Halts Activities
The Nigerian Army on Friday accused United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) staff of spying for Islamist militants in northeast Nigeria, and suspended the agency’s activities there
UNICEF staff “train and deploy spies who support the insurgents and their sympathizers”, the Nigerian military said in a statement.
These were “unwholesome practices that could further jeopardize the fight against terrorism and insurgency”.
A UNICEF spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
