03 June 2016, 21:21

Abuja - The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation has alerted the public to scammers that have opened accounts in the name of the head of the service, Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita, with the intent of defrauding people.

Such culprits have reportedly proceeded to communicate with innocent members of the public on false claims and promises.

“The Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation wishes to state categorically that Mrs Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita personally or does not own any of the said social media accounts and does not communicate to the public through such channels for any purpose,” Civil Service spokesperson, Haruna Imrana, said.

The public has therefore be warned to disregard any offer or promise on any of the so called personal social media accounts of Oyo-Ita.

“Any person who does so does it at his or her own risk,” said Imrana.

“The public is advised to contact the relevant Government institutions for any official requirement or need they may have and not respond to fake personal social media account promises by unknown fraudulent people,”

Imrana added.
