The Nigerian Air Force, NAF, has uncovered the activities of fraudsters who have created fake official Facebook accounts with the names of the Chief of the Air Staff, CAS, Sadique Abubakar, and the NAF Director of Public Relations and Information, DOPRI, Olatokunbo Adesanya.
A statement signed by the NAF’s Director of Public Relations and Information, Olatokunbo Adesanya, said that these unscrupulous elements are out to deceive and defraud unsuspecting members of the public with false information claiming such to come from the NAF.
He therefore advised the general public to be wary of such fraudsters, saying that members of the public are free to walk into any NAF Public Relations Office at any time for inquiries.
The statement read in part: “It must be stated that neither the CAS nor the NAF Spokesman has any official Facebook account or pages bearing their pictures in uniform or indicating their ranks.
“Members of the public are therefore advised to disregard any request for friendship or information arising from any Facebook account or page, with the CAS or NAF Spokesman in uniform or indicating their ranks.
“Public inquiries about the NAF should be addressed to [email protected]. Besides, members of the public are free to walk into any NAF Public Relations Office at any time for inquiries.”
