Lagos state governor, Babatunde Fashola, yesterday decried the use of his wife’s name, Abimbola, the First Lady of the state, by impostors on social networking sites denying his wife operates any social media account.
In a statement by Mr. Hakeem Bello, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media, Fashola warned that the First Lady of the state does not operate a Facebook, Twitter or indeed any social media account
“Perpetrators of the criminal act should desist henceforth or should be ready to face the music when the long arm of the law catches up with them,” the Special Adviser warned.
Describing impersonation as a criminal offence punishable by law, Hakeem warned unsuspecting members of the public to avoid falling victims of fraudsters impersonating the First Lady on Facebook or any social media platform.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the First Lady of Lagos State, Dame Emmanuella Abimbola Fashola does not operate any Facebook, Twitter or indeed any social media account,” he stated.
