The said impostor has reportedly been using the name of the COAS, Lieutenant General Kenneth Minimah, to dupe unsuspecting members of the public by soliciting for money on Facebook, the popular social networking site.

“Please be informed that the COAS does not operate any Facebook account or any of the social media for that matter. The general public is hereby advised to desist from transacting business or sending money to the impostor.  Anybody who transacts business with the impostor does so at his/her own risk,” Usman added.
