Fraudsters clone EFCC boss’ phone number.
Abuja—Criminals have allegedly cloned the phone number of Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, and used same to defraud people.
EFCC raised the alarm yesterday, asking Nigerians to beware of the suspects who were being trailed for appropriate punishment.
A statement by spokesman for EFCC, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren, said the fraudsters had successfully impersonated Magu and extorted money from members of the public.
Part of the statemen read: “For the avoidance of doubts, the EFCC Chairman and, indeed, all officials of the agency, do not solicit for nor accept payments/gratification from persons or organisations under any guise.”
