Abdulrahman-DambazauThe Minister of Interior, Lt.-Gen. Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau (retd.) has alerted Nigerians to the existence of impostors on Facebook, who are using his name to defraud the unsuspecting public.

In a statement signed by his Press Secretary, Osaigbovo Ehisienmen on Thursday, the minister said he does not have a Facebook account.

“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”, the statement read in part.

“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”, he added.

Mr. Ehisienmen, therefore, advised Nigerians to disregard any person posing as the Interior Minister on Facebook and report such impostor to the Police and other law enforcement agencies for necessary action.
