The Office of Kaduna State Governor-elect, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, on Wednesday, alerted the general public of fraudulent act by an unknown impostor using his name.
His spokesperson, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, disclosed in a statement issued to newsmen in Kaduna.
According to Aruwan, the impostor had created an e-mail address in the name of El-Rufaithe and criminally soliciting money from the general public.
The statement read: “Some fraudster with email address: nelrufai claiming to be Malam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai, Kaduna State Governor-elect, has sent scam messages asking people to remit N150,000 to a Mainstreet Bank account.
“This is not only a case of theft of identity, but a case of fraud, impersonation and total misrepresentation of the person of the Kaduna State Governor-elect, Malam Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai.
“We are by this notice calling on the general public to disregard any electronic message and others received in this regard. It is criminal and not from the person of the Governor-elect.
