The Lagos State Police Command spokesperson, Ngozi Braide, on Monday raised the alarm over the operation of five different Facebook accounts in her name by some unknown fraudsters.
According to Braide, the attention of the command was drawn to the various activities of impostors/fraudsters who opened and are currently operating about five different Facebook accounts with the name: Ngozi Braide.
The fraudsters are also using and displaying her pictures in Police uniform as a ploy to deceive and make their unsuspecting victim believe that they are dealing with the right person.
She added: “The fraudsters have equally succeeded in duping innocent citizens of their hard earned money by luring them into believing that jobs could be offered to them by the PPRO.”
She stressed that for the avoidance of doubt, she does not operate any Facebook or Twitter account.
“The perpetrators of this devilish act should desist henceforth or face the wrath of the law as this is not only an embarrassment to the Nigeria Police Force but a criminal offence which is punishable by law,” added Braide.
It was further gathered that the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, Umar Manko, has set up a high powered investigation body to fish out the culprits.
Manko also warned the general public to beware of falling prey to the antics of criminals/fraudsters impersonating the Lagos State PPRO and other prominent citizens.
