Help, Fraudsters Have Invaded Abuja, Forging My Signature, Phone Numbers, Others – FCT Minister

FCT Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed

Minister of the Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Senator Bala Mohammed has lamented the invasion of Abuja by fraudsters and scammers who have been duping people, including his friends with forged signature and phone numbers of his.
Senator Bala, who had earlier today, gathered top operatives of the FCT administration at his Gwarimpa residence to intimate them about the dangerous development, also spoke through his special assistant on media, Nosike Ogbuenyi in a statement today.
At the meeting today with the minister, for what was termed ‘Operations Briefing Session of the FCT Administration’ held at the Banquet Hall of his Life Camp Gwarinpa official residence, were  the Minister of State, Permanent Secretary, the FCT Commissioner of Police, Mandate Secretaries, Directors, Special Assistants and other senior officials.
The minister alerted them about the development which he described as worrisome.
Nosike, in a statement later, said that some of the scammers have gone to the extent of cloning the Minister’s telephone numbers while some of the criminal elements have resorted to printing fake Rights of Occupancy (R-of-O) for the purpose of extorting money from gullible people.
“The attention of the FCT Administration has been drawn to the unlawful activities of some mischievous elements using the name of the Hon. Minister of FCT, Senator Bala Abdulkadir Mohammed to dupe unsuspecting members of the public including his friends.”
The statement said that the Police and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) have already been alerted about the criminal activities of the fraudsters even as Nosike confirmed that one of such fraud stars has been arrested.
The statement asked members of the public to be wary of such criminally-minded elements in the society who have been going around duping unsuspecting members of the public. [myad]
