Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) woman leader in the FCT, Mrs. Hail­mary Aipoh, has raised alarm over ex­tor­tion from women mem­bers of the party by some uniden­ti­fied per­sons in the ter­ri­tory.

Ad­dress­ing news­men at the state sec­re­tariat of the party yes­ter­day in Abuja, Aipoh alleged that an uniden­ti­fied group of women had been us­ing her name to ex­tort N2,000 from un­sus­pect­ing fe­male mem­bers of the party.

She said the group col­lected the money under the pre­tense that it would of­fer loans to the women,adding there was no time she gave such a di­rec­tive and warned those be­hind the act to de­sist.

“I just called on your at­ten­tion that there was a fraud go­ing on by some group of yet to be iden­ti­fied el­e­ments that are go­ing around col­lect­ing N2,000 as form fee.

“I want to make it cat­e­gor­i­cally clear that I have not di­rected any­body to col­lect any money and I am not aware of any loan. Those doing so should de­sist be­fore the law catches up with them,” she warned.
