The Fake Accounts
To prevent the public from falling victim to impostors using fake Facebook accounts of the Executive Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa, the anti- graft agency has released the authentic account.
In a statement by Mr Wilson Uwujiaren, Head of Media, ” the following Facebook Groups and accounts: ABDULRASHEED BAWA. (EFCC CHAIRMAN) Public group, EFCC-BOSS Abdulrasheed, bawa 1, @abdulrasheed bawa, @Abdulrasheed Yahaya Bawa and @ Abdulrasheed Bawa purportedly belonging to the Executive Chairman of the Commission, Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa are fake”.
He said the impostors behind the fake accounts are bent on deceiving unsuspecting Nigerians into believing that they are genuine Facebook accounts of the EFCC boss.
“There are several fake social media accounts supposedly belonging to the EFCC chairman and despite repeated disclaimer, the figures behind the identity theft are unrelenting, he said , adding,
“To foreclose further cloning of Bawa’s Facebook account, the Commission is constrained to make public, the personal Facebook account of the EFCC chair.
Bawa has one Facebook account which is, @AbdulRasheed Bawa
“Members of the public are enjoined to treat any other account supposedly belonging to the EFCC chairman as fake, and stop further dealings with such platforms. The public should be guided and avoid the risk of falling victim of scam.”
