Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau has informed Nigerians that he doesn’t have a Facebook account.
Dambazau also warned that some fraudsters were using Facebook accounts opened in his name to dupe citizens.
The minister made the disclosure via a statement released by his Press Secretary, Osaigbovo Ehisienmen on Thursday, September 15, 2016.
The statement reads:
“The attention of the Honourable Minister of Interior, Lt General Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau (Rtd), has been drawn to the activities of some ungodly, unscrupulous and criminally minded persons, masquerading as the Interior Minister on Facebook.”
“These impostors have craftily opened multiple Facebook accounts bearing the name and photographs of the Interior Minister, where-in they swindle unsuspecting members of the public of their hard earned money with a promise of securing job opportunities for their victims in the Military, Paramilitary Agencies, the Nigeria Police, etc.
“For the avoidance of doubt, General Dambazau does not have a Facebook account, and does not intend to have any.”
Dambazau also urged Nigerians to report the fraudulent activities and the persons behind them to the police.
