Nigerian’s Anti-graft agency, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has revealed the Facebook account of its Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa which would serve as his official social media account.

In a statement issued by its spokesman yesterday, Wilson Uwujaren, the commission stated that Bawa’s Facebook account is @AbdulRasheed Bawa.

The commissioner denounced several Facebook accounts opened by swindlers in Bawa’s name while warning unsuspecting members of the public.

According to him, fake accounts are: ‘ABDULRASHEED BAWA. (EFCC CHAIRMAN) Public group, EFCC-BOSS Abdulrasheed, Bawa 1, @abdulrasheed Bawa, @Abdulrasheed Yahaya Bawa, and @ Abdulrasheed Bawa.

‘The impostors behind the fake accounts are bent on deceiving unsuspecting Nigerians into believing that they are genuine Facebook accounts of the EFCC boss.

“There are several fake social media accounts supposedly belonging to the EFCC chairman and despite repeated disclaimer, the figures behind the identity theft are unrelenting.

To foreclose further cloning of Bawa’s Facebook account, the Commission is constrained to make public, the personal Facebook account of the EFCC chair.

‘Bawa has one Facebook account which is, @AbdulRasheed Bawa,’ the statement said.

The commission went further to state that members of the public were enjoined to treat any other account supposedly belonging to its chairman as fake and stop further dealings with such platforms.

‘The public should be guided and avoid the risk of falling victim to a scam‘, it concluded.
