“The subversive and actions of the NGO Action Against Hunger (AAH) persisted despite several warnings to desist from aiding and abetting terrorists and their atrocities.
”The TC – OPLD has on many occasions raised the alarm over this unwholesome practices of some NGOs and expressed same position during meetings with the NGOs operating in the NE Theatre of Operation.
“Consequently, the AAH has been declared persona nan grata for aiding Boko Haram Terrorists/Islamic State West Africa by supplying them food and drugs despite warning from the TC – OPLD.
