More than 500 unsuspecting Nigerians have been hoodwinked by the promoters of fake Twitter accounts supposedly belonging to the the new executive chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Mr. Abdulrasheed Bawa.

EFCC Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren who raised alarm on Saturday in Abuja said three of the fake accounts created in the last few days: @AbdurasheedBawa,@AbdulrBawa [email protected]; have been attracting followers in droves, believing they were dealing with the EFCC boss.

Uwujaren stated that these Twitter Accounts do not belong to Mr. Bawa, and should be disregarded.

Adding: “The EFCC equally wishes to remind members of the public that unauthorised use of the name and image of someone else, is identity theft, a criminal offence.

“The Commission will not hesitate to bring the full weight of the law on any erring individual or group.

“The EFCC official Twitter handle remains, @officialefcc.”
