This shows a Nigeria lmmigration Service checkpoint along Maiduguri - Damaturu road specifically around Jimtilo. The officers are collecting N500 from those that do not have a National ID Card without giving them receipt for the payment. The vulnerable are the poor who use commercial vehicles. Those in private vehicles are not considered by these officers.

RECOMMENDATIONS:
1. Government should make more centers for issuing National ID Card so that every one will have access to it without hardship.

2. EFCC, ICPC, The National Assembly and Borno State Government should take proper measures to stop this corrupt practice.
