“These cyber miscreants have used the picture of Force Public Relations Officer in official uniform to register Facebook account inviting people for different proposals which the Nigeria Police Force or the office of the Force Public Relations Officer are absolutely not aware or authorised”, Awunah adds in the statement.

The Nigeria Police Force therefore warn the general public to be cautious and verify any transaction on any social media purported to emanate from the Force. “The members of the public are advised to be cautious and verify any transaction in the social media purported to be connected with the Nigeria Police or the office of the Force Public Relations Officer.”
