The wife of Ondo State Governor, Mrs Olukemi Mimiko yesterday raised the alarm over activities of swindlers who have been operating a false facebook account in her name.
According to a statement by Mrs Mimiko, fraudsters have been using the fake social media account to fleece innocent people in the name and an image of her person as well as placing her biography on the Facebook account.
She said: “ My attention has been drawn to the existence of a fake Facebook account created by some cyber criminals in the popular social media network .
“The purported Facebook-social media account with the name Mrs Olukemi Mimiko has my personal and official pictures.”
She pleaded with the unsuspecting public to be vigilant so as not to fall prey to the antics of the fraudsters.
Mrs Mimiko advised members of the public to disregard the Facebook account operating in her name, insisting that she has not been operating any official Facebook or social media network account or page.
“Any person who transacts any business or makes any comment in the said fake Facebook or social media accounts does so at his or her own risk” the Ondo state number one female citizen also warned.
