Lagos - Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Ngozi Braide, has warned residents to avoid falling prey to fraudster that had opened some accounts in her name on a social networking platform.
She said the culprits had opened five different Facebook accounts in order to swindle unsuspecting members of public.
Braide, in a statement said the attention of Lagos State Police Command had been drawn to various activities of impostors/fraudsters who opened the accounts under the name “Ngozi Braide."
These display her pictures in police uniform as a ploy to deceive and make unsuspecting victims believe that they were dealing with her.
She said that the fraudsters had equally succeeded in duping innocent citizens of their hard earned money by luring them into believing the PPRO offered them jobs.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide 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,” the statement read.
The statement added that the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command had set up a high powered investigation body to arrest the culprits.
