Minister of Interior, Gen. Abdulrahman Dambazau (retd) has dissociated himself from the several facebook accounts associated with his name and pictures, saying he does not have a Facebook account and does not intend to have one.
Dambazau made the disclaimer in a statement issued Thursday in Abuja and signed by his Press Secretary, Osaigbovo Ehisienmen. The statement reads; “the attention of the Honourable Minister of Interior, Lt General Abdulrahman Bello Dambazau (Rtd), has been drawn to the activities of some ungodly, unscrupulous and criminally minded persons, masquerading as the Interior Minister on Facebook. “These impostors have craftily opened multiple Facebook accounts bearing the name and photographs of the Interior Minister, where-in 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. ABDULRAMAN DAMBAZAU “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”.
