March 31, (THEWILL)- A viral video circulating online shows a young man confessing to deliberately causing fire outbreaks in IDP camps and other areas in Borno State.

The unidentified suspect, apprehended by a vigilante group, alleged sponsorship from two non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

One of the suspects, who said the alleged scheme began over a year ago, said he and his accomplices were paid N10,000 per fire, targeting Monguno, Gubio, and Maiduguri.

This confession comes amidst a series of unexplained fire outbreaks reported in recent months.

The Borno State Fire Service continues to struggle to determine the cause of these outbreaks, including a recent incident at the Water Board Camp in Monguno which tragically claimed one life and affected 232 IDPs.

Another fire ravaged two IDP camps and a market, resulting in two deaths and N50 million in property damage.

The State Commissioner of Information and Internal Security, Prof. Usman Tar, said the government is aware of the development.

He said investigations are ongoing, as the suspects have been arrested and are currently in police custody.

Tar also added that the two NGOs have been invited for their involvement in the issues.
