Cons swindle public in the name of Speaker

23 November 2015, 13:17

Abuja - The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has alerted members of the public to fraudsters using his purported social media account to carry out illegal acts.

He said the Facebook accounts that go with the name, "Yakubu Dogara", or “Speaker of the House of Representatives", or any other name associated with the Speaker carrying his pictures were not sanctioned by him or any of his aides.

“Attention of the office of the Speaker has been drawn the existence of fake and fraudulent facebook accounts of Speaker. Reports reaching us indicate that the said facebook accounts are being used to solicit funds from unsuspecting members of the public.”

Dogara said the administrators of those accounts were advertising for a so-called empowerment scheme by Speaker for which unsuspecting applicants were asked to pay certain amount of money as premium to access the scheme.

He said members of the public should be careful of fraudsters who were using the Speaker's name and pictures to defraud innocent Nigerians.
