The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Friday, July 3, 2015, alerted the public of the activities of those impersonating him via various social media platforms with the intention of defrauding unsuspecting citizens.

Governor Ambode in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Habib Aruna, said some unscrupulous characters were attempting to capitalise on his goodwill to dupe members of the public particularly his associates.

He said that he had been inundated with complaints from his associates about proliferation of his identity in cyberspace under different platforms, especially the social media, with obvious intent to defraud Nigerians.

The Governor said a faceless character who currently operates with the e-mail: was going about soliciting for CVs from his friends and acquaintances for appointments.

He also alerted the public on the multiple identities the faceless persons operate on Facebook with his  name and photographs.

The governor therefore urged Nigerians to disregard entreaties from such persons calling on them to report to the law enforcement agencies to ensure that those behind the nefarious acts face the wrath of the law.

Ambode also assured that efforts would be made to nab those behind the dastardly act.
