Hackers Using My Phone Number To Defraud Members Of The Public, Yero Cries Out

YeroGovernor Mukhtar Yero of Kaduna State on Wednesday raised alarm over the use of his phone number by fraudsters to extort money from the public.

Mr. Yero, in a statement issued by his Director-General on Media and Publicity, Ahmed Maiyaki, said his line was hacked by the fraudsters.

“Governor Yero has not directly or through any third party asked people to make deposit into certain bank accounts.

“Suspected fraudsters have obviously hacked the governor’s phone number and are using it to defraud unsuspecting people”, Maiyaki said.

He, therefore, advised the general public to disregard any message or text purportedly from the governor to part with their “hard earned money”.



  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking
    into starting my own blog and was wondering
    what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or
    advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
