Two Nigerian officials have been jailed for selling food aid meant for people fleeing militant attacks and food shortages in the country’s north-east.
The two sold 180 bags of rice donated by an international aid agency, the court in Maiduguri, Borno State, heard.
They were jailed for two years and fined 1m naira ($3,200; £2,500) each.
More than two million people have been displaced in north-eastern Nigeria where security forces are battling Islamist militant group Boko Haram.
The prosecution of the two officials was brought by Nigeria’s anti-corruption agency, the EFCC.
Umar Ibrahim, a local councillor, and Bulama Ali Zangebe, a member of a camp feeding committee, are said to be the first convicted for corruption in relation to food aid in Nigeria since the insurgency began in 2009.
