Scammers impersonate Cross River Governor

Lagos – Members the public
have been alerted of scammers
using the name of Cross River
State Governor, Ben Ayade, to
defraud victims of their money
in return of non-existent jobs.
Special Assistant on Media and
Chief Press Secretary, Christian
Ita, has thus disowned a
cloned Facebook account
purported to be that of the
governor.
Ita said tricksters were
through the site swindling
unsuspecting members of the
public of their money for job
placements.
“The said Facebook account is
currently being used by
swindlers to con unsuspecting
members of the public of their
money for job offers,” Ita said.
He said this was the handiwork
of fraudsters and desperadoes
who are taking advantage of
the job opportunities being
created by Governor Ayade.
Ita warned the general public
to be wary of these criminal
elements.
“Given the antecedent of the
governor, he has been known
over the years to provide
succour to the needy and less
privileged in the society
through his various charity
platforms.
“He is not one to ask anybody
to part with money for favours.
If he has not done this in his
private capacity, he cannot
now do that as a public officer.
