While briefing newsmen in Port Harcourt recently, South-South Zonal Director of EFCC, Ishaq Salihu, said Two of the suspects Tasiu Ismail and Haruna Ismail were alleged to have cloned the Facebook account of the NDDC boss, while the third suspect Rowland Chimezie was arrested for allegedly impersonating Governor Dickson and Bro. Obuah .
Salihu said, “We have gotten one Tasiu Ismail and Haruna Ismail, who cloned the Facebook page of Nsima Ekere, the Managing Director of NDDC, to lure gullible Nigerians into believing that they have jobs and should apply to get the jobs.
“We also, through a synergy with a sister security agency, got one Okunado Rowland Chimezie, who impersonate politicians. He cloned the facebook accounts of Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State and that of Brother Felix Obuah, the PDP chairman of Rivers State, among others. They promised youths that they will grant them loans and in turn demand for huge amount of money from them.”
