Be Wary Of Fake Danbatta LinkedIn Account- NCC Warns Nigerians

 

 

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has dissociated itself and the Executive Vice Chairman of the commission, Professor Umar Garba Danbatta from a fake LinkedIn account that is being attributed to the commission’s helmsman.

“We wish to categorically state that the said LinkedIn account is fake and has no affiliation with the NCC or Prof Danbatta.

“We, therefore, urge the public to be wary of any communication or connection request from this fake LinkedIn account, as it is being operated by fraudulent individuals, who may be seeking to defraud unsuspecting members of the public,” the commission said in a  statement issued by its  Director of Public Affairs, Reuben Muoka.

The commission therefore warned the public to verify the authenticity of any online account even as it warned the perpetrators of the act to desist from the criminal act as the commission will not hesitate to take legal action against them.”We wish to use this opportunity to remind the public that it is important to verify the authenticity of any online account, especially when such accounts claim to belong to public figures or organizations. We advise the public to only connect with verified and official accounts of the NCC and its officials.

“We take this opportunity to warn those behind this fake LinkedIn account that they are engaging in criminal activities, and we will not hesitate to take legal action against them if they are caught. We remain committed to protecting the public from online fraud and ensuring a safe and secure online environment.”
