Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode on Friday alerted the general public on the activities of some impostors impersonating him via various social media platforms with the intention of defrauding unsuspecting citizens.
The Governor in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Habib Aruna, said some unscrupulous characters are attempting to capitalize on his goodwill to dupe members of the public particularly his associates.
He said he had been inundated with complaints from his associates alerting of the rapid proliferation of his identity in cyberspace under different platforms, especially the social media, with obvious intents to defraud Nigerians.
The Governor said a faceless character who currently operates with the e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org is going about soliciting for CVs from his friends and acquaintances for appointments.
He also alerted the public on the multiple identities these faceless persons operate on Facebook with his name and photographs.
The Governor therefore urged Nigerians to disregard entreaties from such persons calling on them to report tothe law enforcement agencies to ensure that those behind the nefarious act can be made to face the wrath of the law.
Governor Ambode also assured that efforts will be made to nab those behind the dastardly act.
