Lagos state Governor, Mr. Akinwumi Ambode has alerted Lagosians in particular and Nigerians in general on the activities of some unknown people impersonating him with fake facebook and yahoo mail accounts to defraud the public.
In a recent statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Habib Aruna, Ambode said some unscrupulous characters are attempting to capitalise on his goodwill to dupe members of the public, particularly, his associates.
Ambode said he had been inundated with complaints from his associates of the rapid proliferation of his identity in cyberspace under different platforms, especially the social media.
“A faceless character, who currently operates with the e-mail: email@example.com, is going about soliciting for CVs from his friends and acquaintances for appointments,” Ambode said.
He also alerted the public on the multiple identities these faceless persons operate on facebook with his name and photographs.
Ambode, therefore, urged Nigerians to disregard entreaties from such persons, calling on them to report to the law enforcement agencies to ensure that those behind the nefarious act could be made to face the wrath of the law.
