Fashola warns Nigerians not to fall victim of Facebook scammers using his name

-

- Advertisment -

FORMER Lagos Governor Mr. Babatunde Fashola, SAN on Monday has cautioned Facebook users not to fall for scammers using his name and picture. He therefore dissociated himself from the practice by unscrupulous persons using his photographs and ascribing fictitious statements to him with the aim to defraud innocent people.

He noted that the call became necessary for the umpteenth time in view of the activities of scammers that have been issuing out series of Facebook comments and information in his name with the intention of duping unsuspecting members of the public.

A statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Hakeem Bello, notes: “The conmen have, through Facebook, been urging unsuspecting people to apply for some government facilities or utilities meant to benefit the public but to which some agencies of government have been given the responsibility to manage.

“One of such information is titled, “Disbursement of Subsidy Dividend (SURE-P)” claimed to have been issued by Fashola informing citizens that “Subsidy proceed is available for Agro and commercial business; apply for soft loan with no collateral, zero percent interest rate and flexible terms”.

Fashola advised members of the public to always clarify with the appropriate agencies of government at all levels before engaging in any dealings with people supposedly working for them and report them to the law enforcement agencies so that those involved in the nefarious act can be made to  face the wrath of the law
