The Federal Ministry of Interior has issued a disclaimer stating that Lt. General Dambazau, Minister of Interior, does not have a Facebook account amid multiple accounts bearing his name and photographs on the social media network.
The Ministry says the attention of the Minister has been drawn to the activities of “some ungodly, unscrupulous and criminally-minded persons, masquerading as the Interior Minister on Facebook.”
According to the disclaimer, these impostors have craftily opened multiple Facebook accounts bearing the name and photographs of the Interior Minister, wherein 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. Nigerians are therefore enjoined 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,” the Ministry says.
