Fake Facebook account of Air Chief Marshal AS Badeh on FacebookHis “Facebook friends” regularly pray for him or stop by his wall to drop some words of inspiration to encourage his performance in the defence of his fatherland.

Not also forgetting a handful of female admirers like ‪Joyce Okpor James who publicly pour out her “Fine boy no pinple,(sic) nice pic” public adoration of the nation’s defence chief.

If Facebook is to be believed, the Defence chief likes Top Naija Music Magazine, and Akpos King of comedian, the latter being the official Facebook page of a self-styled “king of comedian.”

However, the Defence Headquarters has stepped in to say that this has become a joke taken too far as Badeh has never opened any official or private Facebook account.

The Facebook account is the work of cyber fraudsters who have created the account complemented by the “official photographs of the Chief of Defence Staff”, according to a statement issued by the Defence Headquarters disclaiming the Facebook identity theft.

“The Defence Headquarters wish to state clearly that the Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal AS Badeh does not operate either official or private facebook account and therefore dissociate the office of the Defence Staff from the fraudulent facebook account”, according to the Defence Headquarters.

The statement also said that the fake Facebook account created by the cyber fraudsters “goes by different fake identities and official photographs of the Chief of Defence Staff.”

According to the statement, “Any correspondence or exchange of messages on the platform has nothing to do with the office or person of the Chief of Defence. This is for the awareness of the general public, please.”
