DSS arrests operator of a fake facebook account claiming to be its Director General

Operatives of the Department of State Services have arrested one Kelvin Nwanaji, who was accused of operating a fake Facebook account in the name of the Director-General of the Service, Mr. Lawan Daura.

Nwanaji, who was said to have been arrested at Ojo, Lagos State, was accused of using the fake Facebook account to dupe unsuspecting job seekers.

A statement issued by the spokesperson for the DSS, Mr. Tony Opuiyo, in Abuja on Friday, said that further investigation was ongoing to arrest Nwanaji’s collaborators.

He said, “Nwanaji had opened a Facebook account in the name of the Director-General of the SSS and had been using it to defraud unsuspecting members of the public, who he promised jobs in the service.

“His arrest was sequel to investigation arising from the messages circulating in the social media that the service was recruiting.

“Further investigation is being undertaken to arrest all those connected with this scam.”

Opuiyo asked the public to disregard the falsehood, which originated from Nwanaji, saying that the service was not embarking on any recruitment exercise currently.

He said it should be noted that employment into the “Service is conducted in the most transparent manner in line with laid down procedures and processes.”

He asked the public to be wary of fraudsters whom he said may use this opportunity to extort money from them.
