Lagos - Former Minister of State for Defence and the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) aspirant Senator, Musiliu Obanikoro, has warned the public against doing any transactions on fake social media accounts created in his name.
These, it emerged, were prevalent in Facebook.
“My attention has been drawn to the proliferation of fake 'Senator Musiliu Obanikoro' Facebook accounts which are being used to defraud innocent and unsuspecting individuals, particularly Nigerians across the world,” he said in a statement on Wednesday.
He said these Facebook platforms were in no way personally or officially affiliated to his person or campaign organisation.
