The National Vice Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party South East Zone,Chief Austin Umahi has raised alarm over the activities of criminal elements who use his name and pictures to create social media accounts to defraud unsuspecting members of the general public.
In a statement he personally signed, Chief Chief Umahi said “he does not operate any social media account or authorized anybody to do so on his behalf”.
He further cautioned the members of the public to be wary of the tricks of impostors who pose as him on social media, adding that anybody doing any business with them are doing so at his/her own peril.
The party stalwart, however, warned the unscrupulous elements indulging in this crime to bear in mind that the cybercrime Act of 2015 is still in force.
He also directed the security agencies to immediately fish out and prosecute the pepertrators of this crime.
